Rating Definition:

Very good. The barrel and cylinder have a smooth refinished gray patina. The frame retains 90% of the replated silver finish which has dulled with age. The exposed brass has an aged patina. There are a few small dents on the left side ahead of the cylinder. The markings and engraving are clear. The action is fine.
