Rating Definition:

Fine. The barrel retains 70% thinning original blue finish with areas fading to a smooth plum and a very small area of minor spotting. The front sight has been crudely modified / replaced and there are a few minor dings and scratches on the base. The receiver retains 70% original blue finish with high edge wear and areas faded to a smooth gray patina. The lever is a mix of original thin blue finish and smooth gray patina. The buttplate has a smooth silver gray patina. The wood is fine retaining much of the original varnish, with scattered overall minor dents, dings and scratches. The markings are crisp and clear. Mechanically excellent.
