Rating Definition:

Fine, retaining 70% original blue finish blending to a smooth brown-gray patina. Traces of original nitre blue remain on the loading gate. Traces of original case colors remain on the hammer and lever. The wood is also fine with several noticeable patches of finish loss on left side of buttstock, minor dings and scratches, much of the original varnish remaining on balance and overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
