From both of us, you are welcome.  I will put some thought into what could be discussed in part III.

Just an idea, but how about covering the guidelines of determining percent condition with color photo examples of each graded percent?  Such as 90%, 80%, 70%, etc.

Don,

That is a very subjective topic, and seldom will you ever find an agreement between the seller and buyer about the % of remaining case color finish.

Again,

Many thanks to both Bert and Brad for the enjoyable and instructive content in these articles – please keep this series going.

These finer points of what to look for when evaluating a piece are of tremendous value to all.

I’ve been a gun enthusiast for 50 years and I’m still learning – this stuff is great !

Dave
