Rating Definition:

Very good with mostly smooth brown patina overall and otherwise sharp markings and edges in the metal. Brass exhibits an attractive age darkened patina. Stock is fine as re-oiled, with numerous scattered dents and scratches, carving as mentioned above, and mostly clear stampings. Mechanically excellent. Included bayonet is good with some scattered patches of light to moderate pitting.
