196. Delivery of chattel pawned.

A contract to pawn a chattel, even though money is advanced on the faith of it, is not sufficient in itself to pass any special property or interest in the chattel to the pawnee1. Delivery of the chattel pawned in consideration of the debt or advance is a necessary element in the making of a contract of pawn2. This delivery may be actual, in the sense of physical delivery of the chattel, or constructive in the sense that, although the chattel is legally delivered, it does not actually pass from the hands of the pawnor to those of the
