I have 70G 44331 and it is a Light Twelve (engraved) and state on the barrel that it was made in Belgium. I'm trying to find a value too.AnswerBeing that you called it a "light twelve" (a Japanese made) and not an "auto 5 lightweight" (made in Belgium) it was introduced from Japan in 1975. I'm sorry I don't have a book with me to show production date based on your serial number. But the book I have reflecting prices as of 2002 (and they haven't change too drastically since) shows 500 for exc condition, 400 very good, 300 good and 250 for fair. I have one of these myself and love it.
