A reproduction IMO.

 

I will add that you seem to have expected an answer within hours of you asking for opinions, this is not an on demand service but a group of collectors who will answer when and if they can or want to.

In the future I will consider whether such behaviour warrants an answer.

I agree that its probably a copy, made for the re-enacting market.  Condition far too good for an original, IMO, with no real signs of wear.  

Jerry's comment on patience is also on target.

Firstly it is not an officers cap but a normal soldiers field cap.  The lining inside the grey material is not original but sometimes soldiers in all nations would alter their kit.  The oil black lining looks too stiff often seen in post 1920 Service caps despite the dates.

My bad!  It is, as you say, an ordinary OR's field service cap.  I can't say much from the photo about the oil cloth liner but I will  note that, for some reason, most of the repro. stuff coming out theses days seems to be dated '1917', if that is of any importance.
