Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 50% of the thinned blue finish on the barrel and magazine with the balance a brown-grey patina and some scattered patches of light pitting. 85% plus of the vibrant case colors remain with the balance mostly a smooth grey patina. The wood is fine with some minor dings and scratches scattered throughout. Mechanically excellent. Overall a very attractive Winchester Model 1887 shotgun with vibrant case colors.
