Try sending in a Morgan that’s been antiqued and see what you get back!!!!!! The NGC has hit a new low
The term “Antiqued” does not necessarily mean that medal was conditioned after striking. The planchet could have been treated prior to striking. Take for instance the “Bronzed” or ”Gilt” pieces issued by the Soho Mint under George III. The planchets were treated prior to striking and yet they have a different finish.
I’ll buy that.
And some are intentionally antiqued - by the mint - after striking and sold as collectors items. Which is what I suspect that one is.
As to the OP's question regarding the "when"; prior to 2001 NGC refused to slab any coin that was minted after 1964. It was only in 2001, and later, they would slab coins minted after that date. And while I can't quote specific years for when it started, NGC and PCGS both began slabbing certain coins, medals, and various other collector items that they previously did not slab. Seems like every few years one or both begin slabbing something they didn't used to slab.
Safe to say it's supposed to be "Antiqued".
Not if the mint does it and that is how it is supposed to be. There are numerous world collector coins made that way
