Rating Definition:

Fine. The barrel, loading lever, and cylinder retain 50% original blue finish (mostly on the barrel) with the balance a smooth brown patina. The frame has a brown-gray patina. There is some scattered minor spotting, with some minor pitting on the barrel and loading lever. The trigger guard retains 90% original silver plating. The grips are very fine with some minor scratches and a few minor pressure dents (on the bottoms), with most of the original varnish remaining. Mechanically excellent.
