Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 80% plus of the original brown finish on the barrels showing a plum hue, and 30% of the original blue finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina on both. The grips are excellent with a few scattered minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent. The relined case is very good. The accessories are all fine.
