This was in the postwar Carl Fischer years. Given the longstanding Fischer tradition of putting their name on things that they didn't make, it wouldn't surprise me one bit that these rotary-valved tubas were in fact, imports.
A friend had a York rotary-valved tuba; 4v BBb recording bell model with simply "York" on the bell. Clearly not a domestic product; looked more like a Miraphone 186 than anything.
