Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 75% plus original blue finish, 70% original case colors, and 85% plus original silver plating with the balance mostly a smooth grey patina, dark antique patina on the silver, and crisp markings. The grip is also very good with some scattered light dings and scratches and retaining almost all the varnish. Mechanically excellent. The case is fine with faded lining, minor handling/storage marks, and the accessories are generally fine or better with an aged patina.
