Default V nickel, injuns and my first silver spoon

Well, after 7-1/2 years of detecting and about 60-70 spoons and forks, I finally found my first silver spoon!
Marked sterling with a really cool hallmark (anybody recognize it?)

Two more injuns bring the tribe to 15 FTY.
1905 V nickel has seen better days.

Happy Hunting Everybody

"Injuns?" Really? That racist term is actually allowed here?

Unfortunately, yes. The issue has been discussed, and it is apparently okey-dokey. Nice finds, nonetheless, Matt!

Didn't you get the memo? Political Correctness is out now. Freedom of expression is back!

It isn't about being afraid of words, it's about not using words that make you look and sound like an ignorant bigot.

What if that "bigot" was a Native American Indian, himself, would it be okay if he said "Injun"? I don't have to tell you what black people call each other that you would call bigoted.

Last point firstů

The version of the n-word you're referring to (ending in -a) is completely different from the one that is offensive (ending in -er).

Secondly, if OP were an NAI, using a term like "Injun" would make him look and sound even MORE ignorant and idiotic. Also, I never said OP WAS a bigot. I said using such terminology made him come across as one. And he does.

Meh. People find what they look for. If you are looking for bigotry, then you will find it, even where it isn't. I've been an innocent victim of an accusation by a sensitive minority coworker who was looking for bigotry in a statement that I made. Fortunately my supervisor, who was of the same race as my coworker, and who knew better, was able to smooth things over. But if you want to find bigotry, you will find it, even if in your imagination.

I have no idea what you're trying to say, but you seem to think that I've taken offense to OP's choice of words. I haven't. I'm just surprised that such language is allowed here while general swear words (even the super tame ones) get censored. But my main point wasn't that I find the language offensive, it was that the usage of such language makes the user come across as an ignorant bigot.
