Hi all, been smokin pipe off and on for many years, have severral different pipes. Found a new pipe today which was very different and wanted to run it by u guys. It is a Briar wood pipe, base and packer/tapper. Large deep bowl by most. The packer/tapper and stem have some parts which are Elk bone (I think) On the stem side of the bowl is written "Ralphins 76 or Raphons 76" Any guesses?

Update...Took the pipe to a Pipe Mender in downtown Minneapolis who fixes pipes and he said the pipe is a "Ralph Ino", somewhat rare pipe. He worked on the pipe for about an hour putting a new stem in and boring out the stem hole. Very pleased with his work. Smokes great...
