I have a Browning Liege 12ga 28" over and under that I bought new years ago. It had about 20 rounds fired in it and I then cleaned it and put it away for what seems now like 30 years or so. This shotgun is like brand new without a scratch on it and looks like like it was on the store shelf. I bought it years ago at a Chicacgo Eddie Bauer store when the moved out of Chicago.

I'm thinking of trading it or selling it because I will never use this beautiful shotgun but I don't know what it's worth in today's market.

Could someone please help out or point me in the right direction.

Thanks,
Dave

the bluebook says $700 for a 98% gun , been fired so it really can't be 100% ($850) I couldn't find any for sale at my usual online haunts , so my advice would be start at $850 and be prepared to go down to $700 maybe $650 but don't go there lightly.

Okay, thanks a lot. I dunno, for some reason after looking at it for the first time in 30 years I thought it would be worth more.
Sure didn't appreciate much! I did find out that from the serial number it was manufactured in 1972.

it's funny how that works , of course the bluebook could be wrong, i just couldn't find anything else for comparison.

On the value issue: I'm taking delivery next week on this model, with 30" bbls, flat knob, field-style forearm and factory rubber butt pad. The condition is represented as a one-owner, one box of shells through it, in 95%-98% condition (handling marks only), coming from a gun shop.

As a buyer, the value to me is 1) Gun is virtually identical to a Grade 1 Superposed, only lacking in l.p.i. checkering and engraving; 2) one prior owner. I'm paying $100 more than the asking price - a total of $900 + shipping.

Although this gun was only imported into the US from 1973 to 1975, Browning North America represents the gun is still available new in Europe.

Hope this helps!

It does help TREMENDOUSLY, thank you.

I've decided to keep it, more because of sentimental value than need for cash or trade. I bought it when I was 23 and it was my first shot gun.
