Rating Definition:

Fine, showing 50% of the patterns, a mix of brown and grey patina on the balance of the barrels, 30% case colors mostly in the protected areas, areas of cleaned oxidation, and light handling evidence. The wood is fine revarnished and shows light handling marks and mostly crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
