Here is a watch cap I was very excited to find, but then after looking around a bit, I'm not so sure.  Is this a repro?  Thanks, Clay

Nice cap.  That "Naval Clothing Depot" label looks to me to be 50s or maybe earlier, and definitely not "repro".

The N140 contract numbers are post-WWII. WWiI-era contracts are N140S.
