Very fine with 80% of the original blue finish with scattered scratches, dings on the muzzle and front sight, edge wear on top of the frame, edge wear on the front face of the cylinder, some minor dings on the cylinder and a cylinder drag line. The markings are clear. The grips are very good with two chip absent from the bottom of the left grip panel and scattered scratches and dings. The checkering has moderate wear. The replacement box is with some areas of corner and edge wear. Mechanically excellent.
