This coin has a PCGS G details grade - "Tooled". I'm wondering what the "tooler" was trying accomplish.

Yeah I'm not sure what the scratches are about.
Not sure why it's in a holder either - not a valuable coin, especially in that condition.

How it got to PCGS in the first place is a head-scratcher.

If 'the experts' can call a light garnet paper scouring a "tooling", then so be it.
I would prefer to call it PMD.
Makes little difference to the value in this case, because of the heavy wear.

I would't have given it a "G details" grade.
If I was a TPG'er, I would have sent it back to the submitter, without charging a fee. Perhaps a hand written note: "not graded".

Nearly 3 million 1925 Florins were struck. (combined total from Melbourne and Sydney Mints). That's a lot, when the total Australian population at that time was only around 6 million.
Contained only .0354 ounces ASW (9%) less than a Half dollar.

Coin pictured is a Florin (Two Shillings) - not a shilling.

bleh don't understand why they would call it tooling as I don't this that a schilling is worth more than a florin ;)

More than like some sort of PMD and not something that should be classified as tooling as it doesn't meaning someone was trying to add value so times they may have just want to deface it no idea on there true intentions. Could be they where trying to make a 1925 penny. ;)

Do you have a photo of the obverse?

What a total waste of time and effort sending a piece of junk like that to a TPG grading service. It should have been sent to the scrappers...

No, I don't. It didn't seem to have been altered, so I didn't copy the obverse photo.

BTW, I should have noted that the coin is actually a florin, as sel_691 points out.
