Rating Definition:

Very fine, showing an attractive mix of brown and grey twist visible on the barrels with 40% of the original blue finish on the small parts, 60% case colors on the action with some fading in areas, light handling evidence, a few light dings in the otherwise fine wood, a few chips around the edges, and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
