Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 95% original blue finish on the barrel, with the casehardened frame turned mostly to a smooth gray patina, 30% plus strong case colors in protected areas and on the lower tang, with scattered areas of light freckling, and sharp markings and edges in the metal. The brass barrel band is bright, and the brass buttplate exhibits an attractive golden patina. Wood is also fine with defined edges, some scattered dents, a few hairline cracks on either side ahead of the buttplate, and a reglued cracked section at the toe. Mechanically fine, the lever latch occasionally sticks.
