You should see the engraving on this gun, it has 5 guys on one side standing at a trap field in different stages of trap low gun to high gun, on the other side it has a guy shooting at a live pigeon with 2 cages at his feet, on the top lever there is a pigeon in flight, all surrounded with heavy engraving.
The wood is very nice and is deeply engraved, the butt pad has been changed but looks good.
A Belgian Superposed Presentation in any grade is going to be worth considerably more than a grand....even at 90%. Depends on the wood, is it signed by the engraver ?...gold ?.....pics would help a lot.
Bill: Are you sure about the 1960 date ? The Browning BROADway in F-1,Pigeon, Pointer,Diana,& Midas grades were not introduced into the Browning full line catalog untill 1963.I have one of the pocket size catalogs announcing the new BROADway ribs,that is dated spring 1963.I own a 1963 32in Diana choked F/F that shoots dead on that my father used to shoot crows with.Perhaps a presentation or custom shop gun may have been avaiable with a BROADway rib prior to mass production.Over the years I have owned and shot alot , two other 1963 F-1`s.Please feel free to correct me on this if my thinking is in error.KS-OKIE.
A friend is looking at the gun to buy, he will shoot it tonight if he doesn't take it I may, the book that comes with the gun shows it to be a 1960 with a lifetime guaranty from browning of Belgium germany...
The Broadway rib has a crack in it about 2 inches from the receiver but it has nice gold and silver inlay, and the wood is beautiful.
Presentation grades from P1 thru P4 in 90% condition range from about $2000 to $6000 for a P4 with gold inlays. These grades were not introduced until the late 1970's but may shed some light. Pictures and a serial number would probably help. There usually is a special prefix on Presentation guns. JP
