Rating Definition:

Very good as period refinished, with 95% of the current blue, showing some mild handling marks and a small amount of scattered pitting. The wood is very good, with a small amount of filler on the right panel, mended cracks on the left, and mild chipping and dings overall. Mechanically needs adjustment.
