Gary,What you have is a Remington Model 11. Remington made them under the Browning patent #'s before J.Browning had a contract with FN to produce them.
I have one that was made in 1906. It had seen it's better days,so I had it bead blasted and parkerized and then refinished the original stocks but then put a set of Ramline synthetic stocks on it. Now it is an evil black shotgun,LOL. I hunt with it all the time,they are made to last,and tough as hell.

Value varies with condition,and gun market.

tx- thanks for the reply. I had always been told it was an a5 but it is the exact gun in your photo.So learned something new today do you shoot yours often? Mine has been in the safe probably not shot in 20 years.Was a little leary to use it with the age of it.

I shoot mine all the time,I wish I could find a barrel with a modified or imp cyl choke for a decent price,most of them have a full choke. If you are worried about shooting it,just have a trusted gunsmith check it out for you.These shotguns are almost indestructable,and you can still find just about any parts you may need if something is broke or missing.If your stock and forearm are still in good condition and you want to keep them that way,I would get a set of the Ramline stocks for it. Alot of people ruin the stocks by not setting up the friction rings correctly for what shells they shoot and end up cracking the forearm and buttstock.

J.Browning was a genius,and designed some of the finest guns ever made. There are several different guns that he designed,and other mfg's produced.I also have an early 1930's pump shotgun that he designed,and Stevens produced it,a Stevens 520,and it is also a very well made shotgun.

You can never go wrong with a gun J.Browning designed!
