Rating Definition:

Excellent as professionally embellished by Master Engraver Tommy Kaye, retaining 99% blue, gold, and coin finishes, some oil staining on the coin receiver, and minor handling evidence. The wood is also excellent with limited handling evidence and sharp checkering. The scope optics are sharp. Mechanically excellent.
