Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 70% plus of the original blue finish and 60% of the original case colors with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina, primarily on edges and high spots. The wood is fine with a large gouge in the left of the forearm and otherwise scattered minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
