Export un-cropped images from Lightroom?

Is it possible to export a group of images in Lightroom (not LRC) and ignore the cropping? I know how to do it 1 image at a time. But I'm trying to do it to a batch of 50+ images.

Is it possible to export a group of images in Lightroom (not LRC)
Yes. Select the multiple images in Grid view and 'Share'. eg. JPG Large (Full-size 100%)
and ignore the cropping?
No. Export (JPG Large) will create a JPG at the pixel dimensions of the Crop. If I understand what you are asking!
eg. a camera 4000x3000px image might export as cropped 3000x1600px JPG.

You can export an Original (+settings) and you will see a DNG that is the 'out of camera' file without a crop, and edits not visible. The edits (crop) will re-apply when you import the new DNG to Lr or LrC.
