Rating Definition:

Good. The barrel and action have a smooth dark patina with minor spotting overall. The brass has a mixed aged patina with the trigger guard cracked. The stock is very good with a couple chips missing around the lock plate, a hairline crack on the left stock flat, and some minor dings and scratches. The percussion nipple is missing, otherwise action is fine. The bayonet is fine with a mottled brown-gray patina with some minor pitting and some small chips on the blade.
