Good with mottled gray and brown patina and mild pitting on the iron, traces of original silver plating, aged patina on the remaining silver and exposed brass, and moderate overall wear. The grips are also good and have numerous hammering dents on the butt and small chips, and mild handling and carrying wear. Mechanically fine.
