Not my normal area but it is for sale at a great price...if real. I see some things that give me pause, what do y'all think?

Could be a reunion piece from the 60s, definitely not ww2. These blazer patches are still quite collectible

My first thought was Paki but I have been wrong before (just ask my wife!). I think I will pass, even at $15

I agree on it being Paki and I don't doubt she told you that. My fault for leaving her unsupervised...

Please, Pakistani. "Paki" is a racist slur.

Please, Pakistani. "Paki" is a racist slur.

Not trying to pick a fight, but it's not a racist slur. Please look up the definition of racist. It's a shortened version of the nationality name. I understand it's not nice. But it's not racist at all. And if you imply to someone that they made a racist slur your calling them a racist. And I'm pretty sure he's not.

I looked it up.  It's a slur, semantics be damned. 

 

It reflects poorly on this forum and its membership and it ABSOLUTELY should not be tolerated.

Profanity in one's avatar location shouldn't be tolerated (Your's is Hellaware???)  That could be considered offensive to residents of Delaware.

(I'm not serious, but I'm just trying to make a point about all of this PC craziness)

Kurt you can't win against social justice warriors. And when you do argue a point with them they get really mad and demand you listen to only there views. There on such a higher level of morality then us. So Desertrat I guess your a racist for saying you think this 4th marine div patch is PAKI made. Your so insensitive.

Particularly in Great Britain, there definitely are racist overtones with how its commonly used.

Here in Massachusetts, a packie is where you go to buy your beer.

Different meanings in different locations, but at least be AWARE of them.

Holy crap, I was pretty sure the PC Police would not show up here but I was wrong. I will not apologize for using a term that is used by most people in the collecting community when describing anything made in Pakistan.
