Rating Definition:

Very fine. The rifle retains 80% of the original blue finish with some light spotting, scattered scratches including a series of bright scratches on the receiver, and some high edge wear. The lever retains most of the brilliant case colors with some spotting. The wood is fine with some minor scrapes. The action is excellent, and the markings are crisp throughout.
