Rating Definition:

Fine, retains half of the original blue finish with areas flaking to a smooth gray and brown patina, and strong gold finish. Grips are very good with scattered light handling marks, a repaired cracked section on rear edge of the left panel, and a chip on the top front edge of the right panel. The trigger mechanism is broken, otherwise the slide mechanically functions fine.
