I live in Argentina. The drawing is Eleodoro E. Marenco, a cartoonist of campers and millitares issues. Perhaps it is drawing not accurately reflect the modeloo, but English is the model 1796 or 1811 Prussian in their copies. European factories manufactured and exported large quantity to South American countries. Here it is known as bail handle and was the most simple and easy to produce model. Argentina not any own model tube until the end of the century. A body mounted safety of my city in 1950 still had this kind of sabers.
