History... taken from Saxophone.org:  https://www.saxophone.org/museum/saxophones/manufacturer/1/history/0

 ... around 1900, the two brothers opened a retail store in New York (which is the beginning of Selmer USA) and had an agent in London (Mr. Gomez). Selmer instruments, therefore, crossed the Atlantic and won a gold medal at the Saint Louis exhibition. In 1910, Alexandre Selmer returned to France, leaving his place in New York to one of his students: George Bundy.

Selmer New York 
(dated appx. 1914 to 1935)

As afore mentioned, Conn owned 49% of Selmer (USA). While it is said that Selmer (USA) originally got parts of horns from Selmer (Paris) and then assembled the horns in the US, I believe that Selmer decided that arrangement was too expensive and just licensed the name to Conn.

These horns ARE NOT made by Selmer in any way, shape or form. They are Conn models, similar in design to the Wonder or New Wonder horns, depending on the date of manufacture. They also have a patent date of 1914, 1915 or 1917 and have the traditional Conn "Mercedes-Benz" low C keyguard, but don't have rolled tone holes.
