Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 50% of the original blue finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina and some scattered patches of very light surface pitting and the brass shows an attractive antique patina overall. The grips are also fine with some scattered light handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
