      I've looked into this and at least one source says symbols such as this "which looks like a dollar sign ($), is actually the letters I, H, and S superimposed over each other. These represent the Greek letters Iota (Ι), Eta (Η) and Sigma (Σ), which are the first three letters of Jesus in Greek." Here is another example.

      Yes, this is probably the IHS symbol. See: IHS or "Dollar Sign" Symbol found in Cemeteries
