Rating Definition:

Very fine. The revolver retains 80% of its original deep high polished blued finish, and russet patina is visible where finish has flaked and within some of the engraved lines. The hammer is very discolored. The stock is also very fine. The trigger return spring is soft; otherwise, mechanically functions fine.
