Rating Definition:

Excellent as embellished by John Adams, with limited handling marks and a tiny patch of oxidation at the base of the front sight. Grips are very fine with a hairline tension crack on the left side, and attractive coloration and grain. Mechanically excellent. The case and all accessories are very fine with limited storage and handling marks.
