Rating Definition:

Fine with 85% plus of the original blue and 40% casehardened finish, some light spotting, and general minor wear. The wood is fine and has some glued repairs and flakes in the edges of the wrist, light figure, mild scratches in the otherwise crisp checkering, and general minor wear. Mechanically fine.
