It's a wide-angle rectlinear, and a pretty good one. Not knowing the focal length, I can't say what it covers.
Yes, I assumed that the parent company's serial numbers would be continued at the US spin-off–especially since the list started at 70001. Clearly this is not the case. The relationship between German manufacturing plants and their US expansion plants (pre-WWI) was complex and different in each case. Ah well, it was a very quick search. I'm glad better information was available.
