Rating Definition:

Excellent. The revolver retains 98% of the untouched original nickel finish with some speckled flaking on the left rear of the barrel and on the barrel lug and minor flaking on the trigger. There are a few minor scratches and dings. Most of the faded original niter finish remains on the screw heads. The grips are excellent with 95% original varnish, some lower edge wear and a couple of very small minor dents. The markings are crisp and clear. Mechanically excellent.
