Here's a couple places to try. I'm not an expert on Brownings and I understand there are different versions of this model.

According to my Browning Date of Manufacture book a "2S" prefix means 1962.
Browning went to this type of serial numbering from 1958 to 1969

2 means 1962
S means Sweet Sixteen.
