Excellent, with 95% of the original blue finish, with light holster wear and scattered light handling marks. Straw colors are original and 70% intact. Grips are excellent, with a few mild pressure dents. Holster is good, with some scuffing on the high points, cracking and some lost stitching. Mechanically excellent. This is the ultimate in collectability for the serious Luger collector!
