    Hello, Mikel ! !


    I think it is a genuine US Navy Officers cap, but from what era,
    I can't say for sure.

    Seems to be from the 70's or 80's by the way it's constructed. The insignia/badge
    looks new, oversized and a bit strange, and may be a cheaper type or a repro.

    The insignia are usually made of sterling silver, or an alloy and plated with 1/20th
    silver and gold. Check the badge and see if there are markings and a maker
    on the back.

    Definitely not WWII, IMO.







    Regards, Steve.
