Rating Definition:

Excellent overall, retaining 99% reblued finish and original gold and coin finishes with minor handling evidence, a few areas of slight discoloration in the coin, a few tiny scratches in the wood, and sharp checkering on the stock and forend. The extra barrel sets are very fine. Mechanically excellent.
