Research Facts
Extreme Unction is also known as Last Rites and is the annointing given to those who are gravely bodily ill, especially those in danger of death; it appears as though this kit is missing the container for the holy water; Alpacca is the trade name of a white coloured alloy of roughly 60% copper, 20% nickel, 20% zinc and 5% tin; it contains no silver; its white colour and durable nature make it an excellent base metal for silverplating; Alpacca was first formulated in Germany in the 19th century by chemists Henniger and Geitner; also known as German Silver or Nickel Silver
