Default Lyre Wax Seal Stamp??

Hi All,

Never seen anything like this before. Is this a wax stamp or is it something else? I’ve found Lyre military band buttons but this is a first. Found in a field in New Jersey where most items found were early to mid 1800s. I think I see 3 letters ‘P’, ‘A’ and ‘H’ - are these initials of a person?? No clue. Any ideas? Is this even military?

Congrats on the Wax Seal! Looks like late Mid to late 1800's.
Good Luck!
