Provenance:Ex. Harry B. Andree, Jr.

Condition:The metal is in good condition showing some use, but no abuse. The finish, though faded, is largely intact. The buttstock has a number of small dents and dings. It appears that the stock was sanded during the overhaul work. This may be the only detrimental work done to this piece.
