Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 40% of the bright original high polish blue finish overall and 90% of the original nitre blue on the hammer and breech block with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina. The grips are very fine with a few light chips and hairline cracks and otherwise minor handling marks. The breech block spring is disengaged, otherwise mechanically fine.
