I'm looking for the year my mom's model 36 was made/shipped. The serial is 44xxx.
Your mom's Model 36 dates from approximately 1954 - information on early J-frames isn't sufficiently precise to be absolutely sure.

We think it's old enough to be an original stainless steel but we may be wrong... it wouldn't be the first time.
I'm not sure what you mean by this - M 36s were always blued steel. The comparable model in stainless (the M 60) was not introduced until a decade or so later.
