Rating Definition:

Fine. The revolver retains 70% of the once polished nickel finish with the balance a smooth gray patina with some light spotting (mostly on the cylinder). The grips are very fine with some chipping on the bottom edge and a series of minor dings on the bottoms, along with some minor handling marks. The cartouche is crisp and clear. Mechanically excellent.
