Hi Anne. Call your nearest Hobart parts place. The parts guys will be able to tell you the age and which plant it was manufactured in in the USA. Another source is the hobartservice.com website, look for discontinued products under the food machines group, then select mixers and browse until you find the file that dates machines. One thing to watch for when buying is oil leakage that appears to come from the bottom of the stand. This indicates that the transmission grease is partially separating the oil out of it and it's leaking out of the rear bearing and dripping down. If the leak seems excessive, pass on the purchase. This drip could also indicate excessive wear on the bearings. Also run the mixer in all speeds, if is sounds like a tank approaching, it probably needs a rebuild.

SOURCE: more info re: n50 hobart mixer
N-50 have very good motors the do have one non metal gear its made out of fiber. its the main gear that drives all 3 gears. are they woth 2,000.00 No way. you can get a used one on Ebay for far less. look for one with a round black ball on the shift handle not the all metal this will be one thats not the oldest as the oldest can be a big risk. and parts are more availble on the changes over the years such as the on/off switch look for a toggle switch not a plastic what looks like a wall light switch.
