Rating Definition:

Very fine overall, retains 85% plus bright original high polish blue finish with the balance thinning to a smooth grey patina and minor scratches/handling marks throughout. The grips are very fine with some minor dings and scratches, and crisp checkering overall. Mechanically excellent. The holster is very good with some mild verdigris and wear on the metal.
