Metal is excellent overall with sharp edges and no no rust, pitting, or corrosion - barrel address and cylinder scene are a little light but clearly visible. Barrel retains about 90% thinning blue - cylinder about 85% thinning and shows a few minor dings on one side.- excellent nipples. The frame and loading lever retain about 25% fading case color and the balance has drifted to a gray patina - the guard and backstrap retain nearly 95% silver. Grips are excellent and undamagedwith 90% original finish. A very sharp, crisp and desirable Hartford pocket model revolver in Fine + condition.
