I think you might be right about a wax seal. I think the flat holder at the bottom of it is still attached. Try soaking it in some real hot water and see if that bottom bowl shaped thing comes loose. Or maybe blast it with a hairdryer on hot! The wax they used in those days was similar to the hot roofing pitch they heat up and do seals with on roofs. So it just might be stuck. That stuff was sticky when hot and adhered to about anything. You might then expose the real base of it. My line of thinking comes from rubber stamps that came in their own holders. Just a wild guess though.

Ed the bottom piece is off. It fell off when I retrieved it from the ground. Smooth as a babies ass under that cover

Definitely a seal matrix. That's a great find! Way up on my "to dig" list.

Wax seal, many were never engraved and just left plain. They still served their purpose. This one has a hole at the top to be hung on a chatelaine or watch chain.
