Rating Definition:

Good. The brass has been polished some time ago and is beginning to age with a light mellow patina. There is some pitting on the frizzen and corrosion on the barrel around the flash hole. The stock is fair with a couple of minor cracks on the right side of the forearm, a crude repair at the rear of the lock and scattered minor dents and dings. The markings are clear. The action is fine.
