I have a friend that is looking for one right now, but $1100.00 is his max. If you care to sell it for that amount, consider it sold. Pics would be necessary.

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.

Never thought about it...lol thank you for bringing that to my attention.

Now that I've had my geography lesson, do you have an idea of the value of this gun, definitely not what some of these guy are saying.

Read the description, I have all the new books and the only thing I can come up with is that it was a custom ordered gun.

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
