Rating Definition:

Fine. The revolver retains 70% original blue finish thinning to a mixed gray/brown patina at the muzzle, grip straps, frame and exposed edges. The trigger guard and hammer retain 97% vivid original case colors. The grips are excellent with some very scattered minor handling marks and overall crisp checkering. Mechanically fine.
