Exceptionally fine, retains 90% plus of the original high polish blue finish with the balance having thinned to a smooth grey patina, primarily on leading edges and the grip straps. The grips are very fine with a few scattered light handling marks, some minor scuff marks on the bottom of the right panel, and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
