I didn't realize that the factory was still in Eastlake, OH.  None of 
my other horns make the claim in the engraving.  The case for this horn 
also indicates that it is from the period when King had merged with 
Seeburg.

 David,

  The horns are still made in Eastlake now. Unless yours is really old, 
it was made in Eastlake too.
