Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 97% plus of the original blue finish with some scattered light wear and brown speckling. The wood is very fine with some scattered light dings and scratches throughout. Mechanically excellent. The bayonet and scabbard are both excellent show minimal wear, retaining most of the original finish and the otherwise fine frog is missing the buckle and shows some mild wear.
