Rating Definition:

Fine, retaining 40% original blue finish with a smooth brown-gray patina on the balance. Some patterns of original case colors remain on the hammer and lever, and traces of original niter blue remain on the loading gate. The re-oiled wood is also fine showing some minor dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
