Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 98% original blue finish with a slight rub ahead of the forend, 99% original coin finish with some oil discoloration around the edges, and minimal handling evidence. The wood is very fine with scattered dings and scratches and sharp checkering. The extra barrels are excellent and the case is very fine. Mechanically excellent.
