Not enough info on the serial number. Browning never produced a sweet 16 with that number. Does it have an alpha above it or preceding the 9506?

What type of info do you need? The gun is a Sweet 16 made in 1968. It has a flat knob pistol grip and is the last year Browning had the St. Louis address on the barrel. They changed to Morgan Utah in 1969.
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.
Your serial number indicates that your Browning auto-5 sweet sixteen model shotgun was made in Belgium by FN for Browning in the year 1961.
This firearm was apparently manufactured in 1952, the X proceeding the s/n implies that it has a 2 3/4" chamber as opposed to the old 2 9/16" chamber. High condition Auto 5s are becoming somewhat collectable, especially the Sweet Sixteen and a high grade one in "new in box" condition (with the original shipping box) might bring as much a 2 grand if you could find the right collector.
