1982 Browning STD LUX Presentation

I'm looking for any information out there about a Browning I recently purchased. The serial numbers are L13PY02320. I have only found one on the internet like it. It is not a B25, but I've found some B25's with the same engraving. I believe it's a B27. The one that was listed for sale is the same year as mine and only 59 serial numbers apart. His box says Superposed on the front and the end tag says 27 STD LUXE Chasse Presentation Grade. I've seen where people say the B27 is not a Superposed, but i am a little baffle that the box says Superposed on it. It was hand engraved by one of Browning's Belgian Master Engravers Dany Matagne. Please see the photos. Any help is appreciated.

Browning serial numbers confuse me worse than just about any of the gun makers out there. I remember doing some research a number of years back and just about gave up. Maybe things are better on-line now.

If I remember that model fit into the Superposed era/model #.

I would try giving Browning or Cole's gunsmithing a call.

You have a really beautiful shotgun there.

That’s what I had found also. But those are completely different.

I think there was a point in time where they were crossing over between Japan production and the Liege shop.

Serial number points to Japan production, but engraving an other factors point to Belgium.

There are some others that detail this in a short internet search, having a very similar model where the appearance of the gun doesn't make sense with the serial number.

What kind of forearm release does it have?

It has a push button release on the end.

I believe this is a Liege shop build and custom shop engraved Presentation model. So far I've only found one online.

Leaning that way as well.

Some info I found indicated it could have been where the action was done in Japan then shipped to the Liege shop to be finished, barrels and engraving.

Browning has a crap show with their serial numbers for certain years.
