    It has new American Army officers insignia but absolutly not American nor do I think WWII.
    It is some kind of frankenstein cap that has no value at all.
    Sorry

    I am very sure it isn't ww2, because the hat is Dutch army issue.
    The label says "Amersfoort" which is the city where the hat is made at the "Hassing"factory.
    Probably from the 1960 till now.
    So the gold band also doesn't belong to the hat.
    The buttons and the emblem are American and also not ww2.
    If you paid money for it, go get your money back as soon as possible.

    SteveR and Theo are correct. A modern Dutch cap with modern US insignia applied.

    Post photos of items before you buy for comment on their originality,
    then you'll be much better prepared.........
