    I have a Morgan silver dollar that was certified "Cleaned" by NGC.

    I'm guessing someone would have sent a coin hopping to get a rating and NGC determined it has been cleaned. Does that make sense?

    If I sent a horribly mangled coin in for certification would they take my money and send a coin certified as "crappy"? Would they certify a 'cull'?

    YES! You answered your own question. :happy:

    Depending on how "crappy" your coin is they would either call it damaged or return it as "not suitable for slabbing." In both cases they keep your money. :D

    My experience is buying at auction a slabbed coin with a certification company
    I never heard. ( That's lesson #1 ) The 20 coins I sent to ANACS 6 came back with
    either cleaned damaged or scratched. After receiving them and looking up the prices
    of what they were worth, I realized that I probably lost several thousand dollars
    These coins I bought were really good looking, until they came back.

    Why the devil certify something obviously crappy (your words)? Why not just let it be (save a bunch of money) and enjoy it as the good Lord intended. People of late get so carried away with getting things entombed in plastic. Crappy in plastic don't equal 'premium'........

    Yes they will. And there is a good reason for that. If the “crappy” or cleaned coin happens to be a rare coin, then you get it certified to confirm to future purchasers that the coin is genuine.

    No, but it brings big numbers on Etsy.

    Yup, even a "crappy" (I would pay to have a slab that was graded "Crappy") 1909 S VDB is still worth bucks if real.
