    At first blush, I'd say its a 210. What markings are visible on the barrel when it is assembled?

    am i right to say the "350" stamp is a manufacture date of March 1950?

    here is a closer look at the stamp marks. 1 stamp has an "N" over it, the other is an "M".

    Correct, March of 1950.

    Value in neighborhood of $2200-$2500.

    According to the Blue Book, the Model 210 was made pre WW2 - you need to take that piece to a reputable gunshop or appraiser - too much info in Blue Book, it's confusing.
    Value could be much much higher than 2500 buckeroos.
