Default button no 50

Motif on Btn 50 seems to be a rudimentary 'rising sun', as used on early P&O shipping line items, and Australian army.
Could TP be a colonial police force?

Thank you for your reply.
The upper part of button 50 does have the symbolism of a rising sun. The full object would be a central circular body with a ribbed eight-pointed star.
I listed it as a ball button, but it is actually a 3/4 ball.
A police button comes to mind. It has been an unsolved puzzle for years.
