This is a 38mm Nordenfelt. Made by the Elswick Ordnance Company (UK) in 1919 for export. Maybe to Argentina?

Is your case maybe 192mm long or were the 196mm measured exactly?

Nice to see a 196mm case!

Look that Brazil must be one of the worst places for collecting, because they see us as bad guys and the rules of collecting are difficult, and imported pieces only come via smuggling.

already Argentina and paradise here next
