Rating Definition:

Very fine, showing an attractive even brown patina on the barrels, strong traces of the case colors mostly in the protected areas, and mild handling evidence. The wood has been revarnished and has a small crack on the left of the forend, otherwise, it is very fine with crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
