Rating Definition:

Very good plus, showing mostly a smooth grey patina with strong traces of bright original blue and case colors visible in sheltered areas, a few scattered patches of light pitting, and mostly well-defined etched panel on the barrel. The reoiled grip is very good with some scattered light dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
