Rating Definition:

Very good, retains 30% of the original blue finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina and traces of the original case colors in sheltered areas with the balance a silver-grey patina. The re-oiled wood is also very good with some light flaking on the forearm and numerous scattered minor dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
