Wednesday, July 13, 2005 AD I Can't Believe I've Never Noticed This On the back of a penny, it says "UNITED STATES oF AMERICA." Like that...with the small O and big F in "of." (But not with the bold, italicized D...that's just to indicate a corrected typo.) Quarters and dimes use all upper-case. I don't have a nickel in my purse to check. Isn't that weird? And ugly? Why would they do that?
The only reason I noticed is that I'm staring at enlarged scanned images of pennies that I'm using to create pie charts in an annual report. Did the same thing last year, but never noticed it then.
Oh, and my captions for the income and expenses charts are "Every penny counts..." and "...and we count every penny," which I thought was pretty clever, eh? Posted by Valerie (Kyriosity) at 7/13/2005 04:08:00 PM
