Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 99% original blue and gold finishes with limited handling evidence and a tiny spot of discoloration on the pheasant's wing. There are a spots areas of varnish discoloration, otherwise the wood is very fine with some handling marks mostly near the toe and sharp checkering. Both extra barrels are excellent. Mechanically excellent.
