The following information was provided by an expert in knives and cutlery from Bernard Levine "The Knife Expert" at The Knife Forums - Click Here:

Two dating clues. The zig zag steel bolster was based on an 1860 patent. The blade marking is deep etched, a technology first used circa 1880. So... it can't be older than 1880.

The nearly right-angle point went out of fashion in the civilian market before 1900. But the US Navy was very tradition minded, so this knife could be as late as WWI or the 1920s.
