Welcome to SGW ! ! {hs#

FWIW, your "Browning" isn't a Browning - It's a Remington Model 11 altered with Browning's blessing to apply Browning markings during WWII (1940-47), when the Germans occupied Browning's Belgian factory.

Remington made some 16,000 16ga's, so the SN indicates it was made in 1947, shortly before Browning resumed production.

"Condition", as compared to new, drives the value - with minuses for wear, rust, cracks, alterations, etc.

The current Blue Book of Gun Value numbers run from $350 in 60% condition to $695 in 100% condition (with box/papers).



The DU Mossberg is valued similarly to standard Mossberg 500's, with less values to a buyer that doesn't care for the bling, and a little more to a bling fan.

The BBGV shows that no Mossberg 500's value is more than $350 (w/o an extra deer barrel).

Thanks Crown Grade for such a quick response it has very slight patches of surface rust, it was used not collected by my uncle (we went thru ww2) same with the Mossberg “Ducks Unlimited”, there are “chips” gone of wood on the stock (probably from setting down roughly, or falling). I know on collectibles of any kind a patina is desirable and normally shouldn’t be removed, what about those rust spots (most smaller than a pencil eraser head)?
Thanks in Advance
Eric

You do not have collector guns. Refurbish as it suits you.
