Rating Definition:

Very good, retains 25% original blue finish, faint traces of original case colors, and strong traces of original nitre blue on the loading gate with the balance a smooth grey patina and some very light pitting on the receiver. The lightly sanded and reoiled wood is also very good with some scattered minor dings, a small notch in the comb, and a small chip in the corner of the wrist where it meets the receiver. Mechanically excellent.
