Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 85% plus of the original blue finish and 60% plus of the vibrant original case colors with the balance mostly a smooth silvery grey patina and a few scattered patches of mild pitting, primarily around the muzzle. The re-oiled wood is also very fine with a few scattered minor dings and a short hairline crack in the right of the wrist. Mechanically excellent.
