Rating Definition:

Very good. The barrels retain 80% thinning blue finish with smooth plum patina in areas. The trigger guard has a smooth gray patina and the action has a smooth silver gray patina with strong traces of original case colors in the protected area around the fences. The wood is very good with almost all of the original varnish remaining, overall some scattered minor dents, dings and scratches, with crisp checkering. The markings and engraving are clear and crisp. Mechanically fine.
