      CONDITION: Fine with period refinished blue finish, mostly bright lock and furniture with some faint patination, some spots of minor wear and oxidation, and generally only faint age and storage related wear. The gold inlay is bright. The refinished stock is also fine and has crisp checkering, a few very minor light scratches and rub marks, slightly loose pommel cap, and minor dings. Mechanically excellent. The case is very good and has some slighting warping of the lid, small spots of flaking, discoloration and contact wear on the lining, and
one of the case compartment lids absent. The accessories are very fine with minor age and storage related wear such as darker patina forming on the undersides where they have remained in contact with the case.
