I found this 1984 penny that has a significant gap inbetween B and E, is this a rare error? Thank you, your assistance is appreciated.

Looks to be the start of a BI coin, either that, or a I that's been removed somehow..

I've been scouring the internet for a similar error but I havent been able to find one. The darkening between the B and E matches other dark spots on the coin, it doesn't appear to be post strike damage. I know it might be hard to tell from the photo.

There will be other coins with this same spacing. All Lincoln cents from 1984 will look like this since the working hubs were made from the master dies.

If you're not familiar with the process, here's a link to how dies are made. (The link will explain it much better than I can.)

Normal coin. The color contrast is creating an optical illusion.

The frog jumps in the right direction, I agree with him. Also, I think the marks that are blueish is the beginning of zinc rot.
