 (Left side of stem) Connoisseur, N.Y.C.    (Right side of stem) Burak (Signature) 
The two pipes above are exceptions: On one hand Connoisseur pipes were never banded by the maker and on the other hand stampings on the stem were applied only if there was no enough room on the shank.
This brand is named after Edward F. Burak's pipe shop (New York, closed 2009). He didn't make the pipes he sold but he designed them. Tony Pesante (NJ) or Joe Cortegiano were craftsmen who worked for Ed.
