Meaning of "tooled"

Glen2022Glen2022 Posts: 809 ✭✭✭✭

On GC 1/8/23 auction there is an 1877S Trade $ and the PCGS label says Genuine - Tooled UNC Details.

What does :"Tooled" mean?

Thanks. Bill

    Means it's been damaged by contact from a device that caused metal surface to be altered in some way. Or as Confucius says "pmd" IMO. Peace Roy

    Using an object or a tool to try and help improve the look of a coin by trying to add details back, or by trying to remove imperfections or problems that hinder the look of the coin.
