Rating Definition:

Exceptionally fine, retaining 85% plus bright original high polish blue finish with the balance a smooth brown patina. 90% original nitre blue remains on the loading gate. The hammer and lever retain 95% plus original case colors. The wood is very fine with a barely noticeable professionally re-glued wrist on the left side and some scattered minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
