Rating Definition:

Very good. The barrel assembly retains 75% of the original blue finish mixing to a mottled brown and smooth grey patina on the frame and lever. The markings are clear. The lightly sanded reoiled highly figured wood is good with only a few minor dings and handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
