That serial number receiver was made in 1952. Condition depends on whether the barrel matches, whether it is truly a Sweet Sixteen rather than a standard 16ga, vent rib or plain, and most importantly originality and condition. Mint condition, correct and original Sweet Sixteens bring $1000-$1500.
Approximate value is in the 1250.00 to 1500.00 range IF it is in pristine condition.

I don't believe that is a correct serial number for a Sweet Sixteen.
Your serial number which begins with the prefix letter X and serial number puts the year of production as 1951 for your Browning Sweet sixteen shotgun.
It is 1959 production. True 'Sweet Sixteen' shotguns are very desirable and heavily collected. It's all about condition. Beater-grade guns with rust/pitting and damaged wood will only bring -maybe- $350, but minty-condition Sweet Sixteen guns with factory ventilated ribs and no aftermarket modifications will reliably bring well over $1000. email@example.com
