Great find but I don't think it's a wax seal. If you used it as such the characters would appear in reverse on the wax seal.

I think what you have is the lower die from a document embossing machine. It would have another upper die to complete the impression.

The following website will show you what I'm referring to.

the round disk is off a saddle or harness. some of the better ones actually have the saddle makers name on them.  when I found my first one years ago I first thought it was a cross belt plate from a soldiers gear and became very excited.

Makers mark.
I have a few old Diston hand saws that have a similar badge. I've also seen other old saws with different makers badges.
Usually really good steel in them, compared to modern saws, but may need annealing before trying to set them as it hardens over time.
Really hold an edge well.
