Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 90% original combination nickel plating and 60% original blue finish with a smooth brown patina on the balance. 97% original case colors remain on the hammer. The attractive undersized grips are fine with a series of grind like marks around the screw escutcheon and attractive grain and color. Mechanically excellent.
