I would find an authorized Browning dealer in your area. Most Browning dealers can tell a lot by the serial number. If your gun is really cherry they might make an offer. I would consider the offer. if you can find a Browning only auction you will likely get top dollar. You don't have to take the first offer. I they really want your gun they will make a better offer at another time.
I have a pair of Colt Diamondbacks my gunsmith really wants. Every year or so he makes a better offer. He will usually try to snag my Colts when he knows I have just spent a bunch of money. Every time I bring one of the Diamondbacks in for service he keeps it for a week. He usually manages to squeeze in some range time. I can tell he has been to the range...he adjusts the sights for his ammo.

I do not shoot with my hand; I shoot with my mind. He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I do not kill with my gun; I kill with my heart. He who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father."
