The serial number would indicate around 1921 or so, but the Holton company moved to Elkhorn, WI in e 1918 timeframe. Perhaps this was a left over bell from the move?

The engraving would be USO Marine Corp instrument.

Can you confirm in detail what other markings are on the instrument? Look on the bell, valve, and lead pipe.
