Rating Definition:

Good, retains traces of original blue finish and mostly silvered out case colors visible on the receiver with the balance mostly a smooth grey patina, some light spotting scattered throughout (more dense on the receiver), and a patch of mild pitting on the bottom right of the receiver. The wood is very good with some scattered minor dings and scratches and a small notch cut at the front of the comb. Mechanically excellent.
