Rating Definition:

Very good with mottled brown patina, some mild pitting, aged patina on the furniture, and moderate overall wear. The frizzen spring is replaced, and the pan is repaired. The refinished stock is also very good and has partially smoothed checkering, some cracks and repairs, general minor scratches and dings, and attractive grain and contrast. Mechanically fine.
