It looks like a pretty common #4 to me. Fulton planes, if I’m not mistaken, were made by Sargent.

I see no reason why that iron cannot be sharpened. 25 degrees is the standard angle, and there are any number of inexpensive jigs on the market to hold the iron at that angle while you progress through progressively finer grits of stones, or sandpaper adhered to a perfectly flat surface.
