I also need some comments and clarification about my 1930-S

in obverse numbers seems double punch and mint S seems repunched or just attached don't know the exact term,

the reverse seems weak strike, there is a die chips bet. Letter U and S from the word pluribus, and a deep area the designed seems striking opossite can't tell what's the term for that..

It's not a doubled die, but it may have an RPM (repunched mintmark). Here are the dies known for 1930-S:

The reverse die is simply worn and eroded. It's quite likely that it had been used previously with a different obverse die that failed and then paired with the sharper obverse of your coin.
