From an Ebay'r
"The "U.S.Q.M.C." engraved on the instrument indicates that it was originally ordered by the United States Quarter Master Corps, which purchased all the supplies for all branches of the US military. Your horn was purchased for use by a US service band. This marking is very common on instruments purchased for the armed forces from the late 1800s through the post-world War One era. Later on, instruments were marked with the branch of service, i.e. "USN" for the US Navy.
Kruspe horns are outstanding instruments, and their full-double F/B-flat horns still command quite high prices on the open market. The single-F models do have a following with players who are also collectors. "
