Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 85% of the original nickel finish with some scattered light flaking and edge wear revealing either a smooth grey patina or attractively aged brass. The grips are fine with some minor dings scattered throughout. Mechanically excellent. The case is fine with some mild handling/storage wear.
