Rating Definition:

Very good, showing a mixture of traces of the original blue with a plum-brown patina, and dark patterns of the original case colors with the balance mostly a brown-grey patina and some patches of mild oxidation and light pitting scattered throughout. The wood is also very good with a minor chip in the right and significant gouge in the left of the forearm, and otherwise some scattered minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
