Default Austrian/Bavarian/French officers sabre?

Hello there!

I am looking for ID on this 18th century sabre/hanger.

Guessing Austrian officers weapon?

I am not an expert in the field.

Thanks

The decorative sign on the back of the blade shows that the sabre or at least the blade has been made in Solingen. So it should be a Bavarian or an Austrian officers sabre around 1750.
The blade shows kabalistic signs or have to do with the zodiac. So is the sign looking like a "4" the sign for Jupiter. Loook at the copies for further explanation

Are there any connections between kabbala/zodiac and freemasonry at the time?

I have seen one of these described as a German infantry officers saber from around 1780 at a auction house. But is supposedly just the opinion of one person. Also some of these are described as „Prima Plana“ which means nothing more than „first page“ (of military enlisting).
Not the answer you wanted probably but it maybe helps you somehow.
A beautiful weapon.
