    My collection of Auto-5’s is fairly representative of production from 1903 - 1965, all made in Belgium. But I do have one Miroku produced gun, the Browning Classic, made in Japan but engraved in Belgium.

    If I recall correctly, these were made in 1984.

    Very nice. Do you shoot that one? Love that wood. Looks close to the wood on my 50th Anniversary A5

    And I do shoot it once in a while, but mostly it lives in the display case.

    Looking up the details in S/V, in 1983 Browning ordered two special models from FN, the Classic and the Gold Classic.

    The Gold was produced in Belgium, limited to 500, and in 1984 sold for $6500.

    The Classic, though made in Japan, was engraved in Belgium and sold for $1200. Production was limited to 5000, and mine is number 158.

    There is a gold classic for sale on gun broker right now for 6300. Would be nice to own. Has beautiful wood. I have to say I really dont like it anymore then my DU, and clays or game don’t know the difference. At least I can make myself feel better anyway that I don’t own it.
