Broken Clock

Fred had a clock with roman numerals to show the time. It was one of those weird ones where the four is IIII instead of IV.

One day, Fred's dog, Checkers, bumped into the wall and sent the clock crashing to the floor, where it broke into four pieces.

While helping Fred glue it back together, his sister Kellogg noticed that the numbers on each of the fours pieces added up to the same value.

What was that value and how did the clock break?
