The Browning Sweet sixteen, will have the words "Sweet Sixteen" stamped or engraved on the receiver after the 1948-1950 time period. Prior to Sweet Sixteen being engraved on the legend which is the left side of the receiver, Sweets from 1937-40 and 46-49 are not stamped. If you have one of these guns, the gun will have a faded gold trigger - not blued. This is the most obvious sign. To be sure remove the forend. If the Barrel ring that slides over the magazine tube has three holes in it, then it is a sweet, providing the barrel serial number matches the receiver. So, check the trigger and barrel. Two other differences can be detected, but it's more info than needed to answer your question.
I did not know that Sweets were ever made in Japan. I have an FN round knob, and my cousin has a square one. If they do exist, they are worth less than a Belgium(sp?), but, unlike an FN, will shoot steel shot. Ric -- Sure, They Did -- Miroku made the Auto-5 Sweet Sixteen from 1987-1992. Mint condition examples are bringing over $1000 fairly reliably.
Most Browning Sweet sixteen are worth between $500 to $800. Vent rib barrells are higher in Value. If it is made in Beligum, the serial numbers match on the barrell and the receiver,90% original, Vent Barrel it could be worth up to $1000. Just because a gun is an A5 made by Browning does not make it a Sweet Sixteen. The standard 16ga Browning was made from 1906 until long after the Sweet Sixteen came out in 1937. To value your gun we would have to know the Grade,serial #,barrel configuration and most inportantly the condition. The gun could be worth from $50 to many thousands of dollars. A mint Grade IV 1922 16ga just sold for $6200 last weekend and it was not even a Lightweight (that is the gun that preceded the sweet Sixteen). The gun was made in 1967. If it is all original and correct, it would sell for $800 and possibly over $1000 to the right group of buyers. In 1967, Browning ony made the Sweet Sixteen in a Grade I model. Any Gold inlay would be aftermarket unless this is a custom order through Browning. Gold inlay is a red flag that says "get this to a professional" for appraisal, to have them check it out. It may be a golden colored filling rubbed into the standard engaving which could hurt value.
