Rating Definition:

Good with mottled gray and brown patina on the barrel and lock, moderate pitting mainly on the lock, aged patina on the silver and brass, generally distinct engraving, and some smoothed areas. The refinished and partially restored stock is good with several repairs including a spliced section at the heel, attractive flame figure, and smooth finish. Mechanically needs work.
