Rating Definition:

Excellent with 97% plus original blue finish. Displaying mostly light handling marks, and a few small surface scratches on the sides of the receiver. The wood is very fine with light handling marks, scattered small dings, and two small holes just rear of the grip where it appears some type of tag was attached. Mechanically excellent. Provenance: Robert M. Lee Collection.
