Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 85% original blue finish and 70% case colors with a light artificially applied grey patina on the grip straps, some light muzzle wear, and a few light scratches. Grips are very fine as well with softened checkering and a chip at the toe of the left panel, some light dings on the lower edge, and an attractive brown coloration. Case is very fine. Mechanically excellent.
