Rating Definition:

Fine as period refinished retaining 90% plus blue finish. The cylinder remains in original condition and is now a mottled brown over patina. The right side of the frame has a hand done inscription "Customs Kingstone" which has been brushed over. The hammer exhibits vibrant flashes of original case colors. The grips are excellent as period revarnished. Mechanically fine.
