Fine, retains 40% plus of the original case colors and the remainder of the metal showing a mostly bright finish with some evidence of mild cleaning overall including some markings softened. The wood is also fine with some scattered minor dings and scratches and a crisp cartouche. Mechanically excellent. The bayonet is very good with some mild cleaning.
