Slightly worn if any (never holstered) 14.

Slightly worn w/ holster use showing bluing worn down to white where snake met leather and a little muzzle blast wear as well. To be expected.

Serious wear and tear over the years (but long before it came into my hands). More of a patina thing than abuse. Tho lord knows all the nicks, scrapes and overall contusions over the years help.

Humidity and rust are to be avoided, so keep them/it oiled. Even stainless will rust, albeit just a wee bit slower than the oxidization blue process. One of the nice things about living in the dry Southwest, but still they get the treatment. Holster use will cause most if not all honest wear on blued handguns, a very nice look methinks.
