Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 97% plus of the original blue finish and 98% plus of the vivid original case colors with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina. The wood is also excellent with a few scattered minor dings and a noticeable compression indentation on the left side of the buttstock. Mechanically excellent.
