Those handlebars are definitely unique, pretty cool looking, and rare. Puts me in mind of the Mercury Pacemaker tricycle of the same era having a similar "horn" handlebar style. The hubcaps do appear to be of American National design, so I'm pretty sure it was sold under one of their brands, such as Skippy. Looks like there was a name painted on the side of the head in the green area, unless my eyes are playing tricks with me.

Good morning Dave
Thanks for your feedback was looking to hear your
Opinion.
My first thought was mercury pacemaker .
The step plate was similar but even though bars were similar they are so different.
The hubcaps and seat reference skippy or American national design .
I found this American national “ skippy “ pict. Which is exactly x

Good morning Dave ,
Thank you for your feedback.
Appreciate your feedback and info.
My first thought was mercury. But even though similar yet still quite different.
The step plate is similar .
But the hubcap s and seat are true characteristics of American national.
Then I found this picture in American national under “ skippy “ which narrowed it to same hubcaps , seat and exact bars .
Difference in frame . Mmmmm got me scratching my head.
