It looks WWII era to me, and the gray cover was only authorized until 1947.  The name is hard to see, but the name (and rank) on the card appear to match an officer (born in 1909) in the 1944 edition of the Register of Commissioned and Warrant Officers of the United States Naval Reserve.

 

Wicker construction was around well past WWII though, so that isn't always a guarantee of period.

Hi,

 

I think that while the names are the same, it must be a different gentleman seeing as the rank is different. The one you found is a Fire Controlman 2nd Class, which would be an enlisted rating.

Good evening,
Thank you RustyCanteen and doinworkinvans for your help and your information.
So for this cap would be ww2. I have a friend who told me that this gray color was that of the submariner. What do you think ?
Do you have any idea of its market value as well?
Thank you again for your help.
Cordially.
Thierry
