Widmann Sword Eagle Pommel 1840s Militia Officer's Sword With Felt Washer:

This belonged to my father who passed away and has been described to me as a Widmann IV eagle pommel American sword circa the 1840s, most likely used by an infantry officer.Sword: 34.75 inches longWith scabbard: 36.25 inches long
It has some floral and decorative elements etched on both sides. One of the etchings is two swords and a shield. Another appears to be a cannon with some streaming banners. There are three on each side. It also has the felt washer intact. The scabbard, however is a later replacement. It comes from a M1860/72 Staff and Field Officer's sword of the type made between 1872 to early 20th century. It is nickel plated, something which wasn't done prior to 1868, and has the brass mountings of the type introduced post-1872
I would appreciate any knowledge or response about this if the description is incorrect or incomplete (Thank you to those who have helped thus far).
