AR is Albert Rex - King of Saxony. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_of_Saxony

FWR is Friedrich Wilhelm Rex - Prussia's first King. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freder...m_I_of_Prussia

These look like cyphers for a cartouche.

Will provide some more info but need to run at this moment.

Yes that would be my second guess - Sabeltasche.

After taking another look the AR cypher is different from yours. I am not sure what yours is. It looks like IR but if so I do not think it stands for Infanterie Regiment as Crowns were usually combined with cyphers that corresponded to those crowns. Also Infanterie Regiment makes little sense without a number to go with it. A bit of a mystery this one.
