Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 97% plus of the bright original high polish blue finish and 90% plus of the original case colors with the balance having thinned to a smooth grey patina, primarily on handling areas. The grips are also excellent with only the slightest handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The box is fine with some mild wear and a dent in the lid.
