Yep...Argentine Victor, in particular, used the Scroll label until 1940 (or very early 1941) then changed to one similar to the US Rings label. Looking right now at a scan (probably snagged off the Dock-o'-the-'Bay) of Argentine Victor 26796-B "Espada De Fuego" (The Flaming Sword) by "Duke Ellington y su Famosa Orquesta." It's a Scroll Swing Classic (though has no personnel listing).

Take care,
