Penn reflects the best qualities of both Mr J.C. Penney and William Penn, he is friendly and benevolent. He always carries bird seed for his bird friends, which you can see in his right hand. Having lost his shoe, he has had to lean upon his golden rule, which has served him well because his bird friend, the Wren, is retrieving the shoe and living by the golden rule also. The honorary ribbon, adorned with acorns around the collar, displays the golden rule pendant, which J.C. Penney awards to its most valued employees. As his "tithing" coin indicates, he will give one-tenth of his penny to the Lord.
