I decided to venture purchasing a backup X230 from an ebay seller based in the US who claimed to be a Lenovo business partner.
The X230 was factory sealed with the security seal.
I ended up finding cosmetic defects on the connector of the right side USB 3.0 port near the wifi switch. It looks like some sort of chipping. I did test this USB port with a USB 3.0 hard drive, and there doesn't seem to be functionally any problems. Still, it's unnerving to see it because I don't know what this means from a reliability standpoint. The left side USB 3.0 port near the VGA connector doesn't seem to have this chipping problem.
Has anyone else have a USB 3.0 port on their X230 that looks like this?

well you have recorded this on picture (and posted it online), which shows you having this chip when you first got the laptop from USA.
I mean if the worse comes to the worst, you can dispute the claim of user damage using the evidence you have.
Obviously, you should contact your seller, and speak to them.
I haven't heard of the USB ports on the X220 and X230 breaking through normal use, like the T400, T500, W500, R400 and R500. So you should be fine.
