Wagner’s Cut & Thrust Weapons has an Austrian naval officer’s sabre, model 1862 on p.449. It looks similar to your beautiful sabre but the blade is etched with the Habsburg double-headed eagle on one side and a crown and anchor on the other.

You are absolutly right, 1859-1872, it has been corrected
