Rating Definition:

Very fine. The barrel, loading lever and cylinder retain 90% bright original high polish blue finish with some mild flaking on the cylinder and minor spotting on the barrel. The frame retains 60% original blue finish with a smooth brown patina on the exposed areas. The grip straps have a smooth grayish brown patina. The grips are excellent with a couple minor dents on the bottom of the right panel and overall a few tiny dings. The action needs work, the hammer with not go into full cock, otherwise functions fine. The markings are clear.
