Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 50% of the original blue finish, 30% of the original nitre blue on the loading gate, and strong traces of the original case colors with the balance having thinned to a smooth grey or plum-brown patina. The wood is also fine with numerous light handling marks scattered throughout. Mechanically excellent.
