sweet 16 value

I have a Belgium Browning 16 A 5 with the gold trigger. The gun is in very good condition and has sling stubs. The numbers on the bottom of the receiver are 9s below that there is 39561. I know very little about this gun so I'm researching as much as possible to see what I've got here. Thanks for any help you guys can offer.

The code 9S indicates a gun made in 1959.

If you want an estimated value you will need to post more information, including the barrel length, rib and choke. Type of butt plate/recoil pad and a good description of the condition of the finish.

A picture of the finish and the sling swivel studs is important to determine if they are original.

This has a big impact on the value as most buyers covet original condition.
