Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 99% refinished blue finish and 80% original case colors, light handling evidence, a few minor marks in the wood, slight crack coming off the top tang, some chipping at the edges, and sharp wood checkering. The case is very good with mild wear. Mechanically excellent.
