Rating Definition:

Extremely fine as elaborately custom embellished by Heinrich Krieghoff. Retaining 98% plus refinished blue finish on the barrel. The receiver retains crisp engraving and bright gold inlays. Wood is fine with some handling marks, a small hairline crack on the left side of the forearm, and crisp engraving. Mechanically excellent.
