Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 95% plus of the untouched original nickel finish, showing a few areas of flaking and mild handling marks overall. A gray patina is showing in the exposed areas. Mechanically excellent. You seldom find Number One Colt Derringers in excellent condition like this exceptional example!
