Denny,

Your cap is from WWI or just after by the shape and the use of blackened insignia. The buttons appear to be state militia but I can't make them out. The cap shape and bright insignia changed in 1926 so it would pre-date that. Some WWI veteran officers continued to wear this style cap but they changed out the darkened buttons and eagle.
