Probably not very collectible but thought it was interesting and wanted to share.

Great find! Definitely carries a small premium, to the folks that collect them. Definitely 2x2 worthy. I found one on an 1983, but it's not nearly as good as yours. http://goccf.com/t/351208

@hm, can you do me a favor and just confirm that this spot between the B and the E, cannot be depressed by the tip of a wooden toothpick? For sure it looks like a die chip, but I'd just like to confirm that it isn't the zinc core starting to deteriorate. Thx.

I gave it a fair amount of pressure Spence but it didn't budge.

Looks legit. I would think if it were a plating bubble,,being that large, the plating would have cracked somewhere and oxidation would be visible. Nice BIE.

Looks like an internal die break. As mention not a premium, but there probably is a 'BIE' listing for this?
