Rating Definition:

Fine with 80% plus original blue finish, 50% plus original case colors with strong patches in the protected areas, gray and brown patina on the balance, and generally minor overall wear. The wood is also fine and has a few blemishes in the otherwise crisp checkering, a very faint crack at the rear of the forearm on the right, minor edge wear, and light dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
