Serial 34199
This'd be an interesting one to add to the database!
Many of these Kratt-imported horns have a stamped "AR Huettl" monogram, mentioning Baiersdorf and Union NJ, but not Germany/USA...
This one has an engraved A K Hüttl monogram [really is a K, and the umlaut is there] / Baiersdorf / Western / Germany, then Union N.J., with U.S.A. hand-engraved.  The pistons aren't too different, the bell has a nickel flare, but I find it interesting nonetheless - haven't seen any others like this.

Note the mouthpiece has "MADE IN / WESTERN-GERMANY" just above the shank, like many of those Coast/Apollo/etc. 7C pieces made in W. Germany.

Umm, I don't see where you are connecting it to Chris Kratt. 

Looks similar to http://www.horn-u-copia.net/show.php?selby=+where+instrument%3D%22Trumpet%22+and... in our catalog.

I see exactly where it is connected to Kratt: Union NJ / USA.  Right on the bell.

Kratt was located in Union, NJ.

The "Union NJ" appears on every Kratt-imported Huttl [and the later ones that make no mention of Huttl whatsoever; they simply say CHRIS-KRATT / INSTRUMENT CO / BAIERSDORF / UNION NJ].

The mouthpiece is also marked Kratt.
