Have you seen the new penny? The front is the same as always, but instead of states, like the quarter, there is a shield that is reminiscent of the Badge 714, from the old TV show Dragnet. It was Joe Friday's badge number. I remember the Badge number specifically since my father's badge was 715, and the badge issued to the officer before him was 713. That's right - Dragnet was such a huge part of the public consciousnesses that they didn't give out Joe Friday's badge number. Just the facts, mam.
