Dan's right there's a variety of Kodak lenses. He's not menyioned the 170mm f6.3 Kodak Anastigmat - Dialyte version in a Velosto (Optimo) shutter or the Zeiss Kodak Anastigmat which is not not the same as the Bausch & Lomb Tessar.
Kodak often used lenses made in the country the cameras were sold or made in, or distributed through. So US made lenses are rare except on very early Kodak Ltd (UK) cameras made in the US. Kodak sourced Tessars from B&L as well as Zeiss (Germany).
It's worth looking at the combination of lens/shutter as they went from budget to high end in terms of quality.
