Rating Definition:

Fine with 40% original blue finish, 50% plus original case colors on the hammer, gray and brown patina on the balance, minor patches of oxidation/pitting, and some general minor marks. The grips are very good and have some minor dings in the otherwise crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
