Rating Definition:

Exceptionally fine as Angelo Bee embellished with 99% factory quality blue finish, some very light forearm marks, and sharp, detailed engraving. The upgraded wood is in equal condition with dark, attractive figure, crisp checkering, and some light handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
