Rating Definition:

Excellent. The barrel and cylinder retain 90% plus of the bright original high polish blue finish. There are a few scattered small areas of minor surface rust. The trigger guard retains 97% original silver plating with areas darkening with age and the back strap has an attractive, natural aged patina with dark original silver on the butt, with 20% remaining on the grip straps. The remaining parts retain at least 90% original bright case colors, fading in some areas. The grip is very fine with a few minor dings and dents. The markings are crisp and clear. The action is excellent.
