Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 85% original brown finish with some light flaking at either end of the barrel, 60% original case colors with some areas muted, and crisp engraving. Stock is also very fine as lightly sanded and re-oiled with a professionally repaired crack running beneath the lock and sideplate, some light handling marks, and defined edges. Mechanically excellent. Included case is very good as sanded and refinished with some scattered light handling marks, a chip at one of the corners, and light wear to the lining.
