Topic tags/keywords: mission furniture arts crafts makers mark appraisal

I am trying desperately to uncover some information on a piece that is being restored by a woodworker at our retirement community. It is a white oak early mission style rocking chair and bears a maker’s mark that resembles an omega symbol (a horseshoe with serifs on the ends of the U). Accompanying that mark is “Jack” in cursive, and the number 167. My friend has an antiques dealer interested in purchasing it, so he wants to know as much as possible about the piece before pricing. Can anyone tell me how to go about either identifying this particular maker’s mark or approximating the value of the piece? Any information you can provide would be much appreciated!

Some pictures of the piece and its interesting characteristics may be helpful.
