Could be some die transference on the reverse ad then an image overlay with another 1983 cent to make sure the 3 is larger. It looks normal to me, but a bit different due to die wear.

I don't know what a USB scope is. I used my camera phone with a magnifying app like I always do.

It is a USB microscope for taking images. They can be stationary or hand held and connect to your computer with the microscopes accompanying software. They allow you to take closeups of a coin with magnification.

Do you have an image? Does it weigh 3.1?

Also how did you find it?

Welcome to the forum.
Are you asking about a USB microscope or 1983 Lincoln cent?
