Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 99% original blue and coin finishes with limited handling evidence. There is a light surface chip at the left rear of the forend, otherwise the wood is very fine with scattered minor handling marks and sharp checkering. The extra barrel is excellent. Mechanically excellent.
