This gun was made in 1949. This is not a Browning Arms Company gun. Acier special means Special steel, and barrels marked this way are only on FN sales guns, not Browning. FN produced the guns for sale outside the US and were not imported to be sold by the Browning Co. The FN version is mechanically the same as the Browning version, but markings and finish may be different. Value is too difficult to be accurate without seeing the gun. Condition which includes the amount of original finish and original configuration will determine value. Auto 5's with poly-chokes, compensators and recoil pads (other than Mag 12's) will reduce value. Recommend taking it to a gun shop for appraisal.

What does 'special choke' mean on a Belgian Auto-5 shotgun barrel mean?

Haven't seen that marking. Choke markings on Browning shotguns are coded by a series of asterisks and dashes. They also had a marking called 'ACIER SPECIAL' which simply means special steel, indicating the gun was suitable for smokeless powder.

Can someone tell me the age and value of a Belgium 16 GA with model number 61423 with a D stamped below it in very good condition with a Polly choke every thing is written in German?

It is assumed you have a Auto-5 shotgun. This gun was made in 1928, providing it is the complete serial number. (The "D" has no bearing on the serial number) The markings are in French, not German. If there is no "Browning Arms Co." stamped on the barrel, then your gun barrel is stamped with the phrase "acier special". This means special steel and the gun is an FN gun, not Browning. FN stands for Fabrique Nationale which was the Manufacturer of all Belgian Browning guns. They also made guns that they sold under their own name, which sounds like the gun you have. FN guns are not as collectable as Brownings, and the poly choke really hurts value. Of course value depends on condition, but in this case you are probably looking at a gun between $250 and $400.
