I'm with Leigh in view of the very high squared corner on the top of the cap.  Jack

I would appreciate additional opinions. I would like to sell my cap and I'd like to sell / describe it as it really is: ww2 or post war. Thanks very much

Well, if I'm reading the laundry tag number correctly in the hat, a search of L5361 comes back to 48 possibilities/names on the WWII U.S. Army Enlistment page.  That said, I would think it's WWII.  Some further research on your part would have to done to narrow down the names to match a possible airborne soldier.  If I'm wrong about this, someone let me know.
