Excellent, 99% original nickel plated finish. There is a cylinder drag line and a few overall light scratches and scuffs to the nickel finish with the model and caliber markings on the left side of the barrel having a weak marking, but still clearly visible. The grips are excellent. Mechanically excellent. The Colt blue factory case is also in excellent condition, but is lacking an end label.
