Rating Definition:

Very good. 90% original blue finish remains with a small area touched up on the left barrel, a few small scattered dings, surface scratches and handling marks. The wood has mostly crisp, well-defined checkering and small scattered pressure dents throughout. Mechanically excellent. Case is good with dings and scuffs on the exterior and some small tears on the interior lining.
