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.
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.
200 USD or so
There is no way to tell from the serial number.
what does 120A choke mean-- I have no idea what you are talking about with this question about a choke

I have a belgium 12 gauge browning shot gun with the serial #B67119. I am trying to find out what type or size choke it has
You can't tell by the serial number. Go to http://www.browning.com/customerservice/qna/detail.asp?ID=100 for choke specifications.
Many of the Mossberg bolt action shotguns used a removable choke, not an adjustable. Sold under the name C-Lect-Choke, this was an external choke that could be unscrewed with a special wrench, and a different choke screwed into its place.
If you are looking at a Browning shotgun, the two asterisks indicat Modified Choke.
The serial number you list does not match Browning convention. Go to http://www.browning.com/customerservice/dategun/detail.asp?id=13 to see what I mean.
You can't tell choke by the sn. Look closely at the breech end of the barrels. There should be some markings on the flats or bottom.

Look for the symbol on the barrel from the codes below '*' designates full choke (F). '*-' designates improved modified choke (IM). '**' designates modified choke (M). '**-' designates improved cylinder choke (IC). '**$' designates skeet (SK). '***' designates cylinder bore (CYL).
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.
50-225 USD or so
Depending on the condition around $300.00
The Stevens model 77f 16 gauge pump shotgun with a 2 3/4 chamber, full choke, no serial number, is valued at between $75 and $125. They were made from 1954 to 1969.
