Rating Definition:

Very fine, with 80% of the restored blue finish, showing some mild edge wear, areas of brown patina and mild handling marks and spotting. The hammer is renumbered. The grips are also very fine, with some minor dents. Some light dings and scuffs are present on the stock. The harness shows some cracking and scuffing. Mechanically excellent. The refinished stock is fine. The leather is very fine.
