Fine, showing 60% original brown Damascus finish, a mix of grey and brown patinas on the balance of the barrels, 30% original case colors mostly in the protected areas, some oxidation on the barrels mainly at the breech, a few scattered dings and scratches, and well-defined checkering on the wood. The case is very good. Mechanically excellent.
