Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 80% original blue finish with the balance thinning to a brown and smooth gray patina on the back strap. 95% original case colors remain on the hammer and trigger. Mechanically excellent. A very rare Bicycle Model worthy of a factory letter and further research!
