    My eyesight sucks. But to me the buttons almost appear to be USAAF. any markings inside the cap? dates, manufacturer, broad arrow etc.

    Yes all available.
    It is a 1942 dated cap made by Hamilton uniform cap co.and with the C/|\.

    Any idea how these buttons get on this cap?
    Postwar applied or even possible during the war?
