Rating Definition:

Fine, retaining 80% original blue finish on the barrel with thinning to brown on the balance. Cylinder is a refinished replacement. 70% plus original case colors remain on the hammer and frame. The grips are fine with minor handling marks, a small surface chip towards the bottom (right panel), and overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
