Rating Definition:

Very good, retains 20% original blue finish strongest in sheltered areas with the balance a mixture of thinned blue and plum-brown patina. The balance of the brass shows mostly an attractive "gold tone" patina with some grinding marks visible on the left side of the receiver. The revarnished wood is good with numerous scattered minor dings and scratches throughout and the forearm with some scattered flaking varnish. Mechanically fine.
