Includes a Nagoya marked bayonet.

Rating Definition:

Fine, with 80% of the original blue finish, showing a brown patina in the grind spot (on the chamber where the mum was ground off), patches of lighter gray elsewhere, scattered light handling marks, and some mild oxidization. The stock is also fine, with a number of dents and scuffs. The bayonet is fair, with rough wood and spotting on the blade. Mechanically excellent.
