There is a very old Columbia at the LBS that I have the opportunity to pick up if the stars line up correctly, it has a number stamped into the seat lug that I need to go back and look for, the bike has wood rims, is there anywhere else I should be looking for critical marks etc in order to establish age, model number etc?

Early Columbia badges sometimes have a model number. Really need to snap a pic. V/r Shawn

That looks pretty original and complete ( what we can see). I'd jump on it, if price is right !

Boy, the saddle on the bike sure looks a whole lot like the one on the cameo pic, what is the "right" price???

No expert but that saddle looks correct to me. Many times the Mfr offered options. V/r Shawn

I agree Shawn, I don't no crap about this stuff except what you guys are learning me but that saddle is rust/patina fastened right to the post, BTW, what is that "extension" off the left side of the rear hub axle???

I agree, a full photo would be very useful. 800.00 sound definitely in the ballpark, but the condition that I'm seeing, puts that at the retail end.
