Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 80% of the original blue finish and 60% of the original case colors with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina, some scattered light spotting, and a couple small patches of very light surface pitting. The grips are excellent with minimal handling evidence. Mechanically excellent. The box is good with moderate wear and some corner separation.
