Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 97% original blue finish, light handling evidence, and light cylinder drag lines. The grips are also excellent with a few small dings, some verdigris around the medallions, and sharp checkering. Some slight discoloration of blue is visible on frame under grips. The box is good with moderate wear and tape repair. Mechanically excellent. A rare chance to own such an early Colt Python!
