Rating Definition:

Very fine as professionally embellished and refinished, showing 98% of the blue with some light handling marks. Some of the components are unnumbered. The grips are also very fine with a few dings, some light polishing marks and attractive grain and color. The case is good, with some exterior scuffs and interior staining. Mechanically excellent. NOTE: The consignor states that the grips are made of antique material, and that the pistol has been in his possession in this configuration since 1964 as it is configured.
