Barrel and trigger guard blue remain at 97%, stock finish at 96%, and checkering at 96% There is a small chip missing from the buttstock where it abuts the lower left reciever as pictured. These early post-war Belgium 10 gauges are the Cadillac of 10 gauge guns and infinately better than the Spanish crap that flooded the market in the 60's and 70's.
