Need some help with the inspectors initials on the Burnside I just recently purchased. The one closest to the screw, is RKW. I believe this is Robert K Whiteley. I think that this individual was the final inspector. The letters are not exceptionally clear, but I matched them up with another Burnside on line so I'm pretty confident the initials are RKW. The other initials are more clear. I believe they are NLP. However, I have been unable to match these initials up with any inspector list on line. The serial number of the Burnside is 18724.
