Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 90% plus of the refinished blue finish with the balance having thinned to a smooth grey patina and a few scattered patches of light pitting. The grips are also fine with a few scattered minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent. The relined case is very fine with minimal handling/storage evidence.
