Very fine. The revolver retains 85% plus bright original high polish blued finish with some scattered minor patches of flaking and light rubbing to hard edges. The butt is also very fine with sharp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The case is very good, with renewed lining, slight staining on the trade label, and two wear patches to the lining from the revolver.
