Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 60% of the retailer applied nickel finish with the balance mostly a bright grey patina and a few scattered patches of light pitting. The grips are very good with some scattered minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent. The case is fine with some mild wear, mostly on the corners.
