Rating Definition:

Fine. The barrel retains 95% plus original finish with some minor thinning and wear on the muzzle. The receiver shows mostly a smooth brown (loss due to flaking), with the balance (approximately 25%) original finish. The takedown ring has cold blue present. The lever and buttplate are a 50-50 mix of smooth brown and original finish. The wood is very fine with most of the original finish and a few overall scattered minor dings and dents. There are a few patches of finish rubbed off on the left rear and bottom right butt. The markings remain crisp and clear. The action is excellent.
