Can anyone identify what this cap is off and the acronym on this pendant W.P.A.S.C

Don’t know what that cap thing is but it looks friggin old! Pendant… maybe Women’s P(something) Association of South Canterbury?

Yes cap does look old and ornate. Found some thick blue glass and a 1866 sixpence about a meter or so away from it, gonna go real slow next time. That acronym is a hard one to pin.

Easy peasy…
Search New Zealand only… and
Drop the fullstops on a google search for an acronym…
Top result and the winner is…

I likee. Mud is under-rated in my opinion.

I put up a thread of various books, one of which is silver-plating hallmarks etc. Have a squizz, I’d be interested to know where the spoon came from.
