Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 75% plus of the original blue finish, 60% of the original case colors, and 70% of the original nitre blue with the balance having thinned to a smooth grey patina, most noticeably on the buttplate, lever, and hammer. The revarnished wood is very good with some minor dings and scratches scattered throughout. Mechanically excellent.
