Rating Definition:

Excellent. The rifle retains 97% plus of the bright original blue finish showing only very some minor edge wear. 85% of the original case colors remain on the hammer, lever and buttplate. The stock and forearm are very fine with scattered minor dings and scratches. The markings are crisp and clear. Mechanically excellent. What a magnificent conditioned Winchester 103 years old!
