Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 90% plus of the original nickel finish with a few scattered patches of mild flaking on the muzzle and cylinder face, some minor markings slightly softened, and a well-defined etched panel. The grips are excellent with minimal handling marks, some light wear on high spots, and retaining almost all the varnish. Mechanically excellent. The case is fine with some mild handling/storage wear.
