Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 99% blue and coin finishes, minimal handling evidence, tiny area of spotting on the forend shoe, slight rib ahead of the forend, and some oil staining in the coin. The wood is very fine with some minor marks and sharp checkering. The case is fine. Mechanically excellent.
