Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 98% plus of the original blue finish and case colors with only the slightest edge wear and handling marks. The replacement grips are very fine with some very faint hairline age cracks around the screw holes. Mechanically excellent. The box is fine with most of the label absent and some light edge/corner wear.
