This one is interesting and a bit of a puzzle to me.
I'm assuming it's another Beehive cap?

https://www.weitze.com/militaria/04/...e__263204.html

At first I thought well, the ink was obviously still wet when the finished cap was folded flat for packing and it's the mirror image of the stamp on the left.
But I don't think it is because the ghost stamp wouldn't line up with the other one if you folded it. Plus if you were sewing the centre seam and the ink was still wet, you'd smudge it with your fingers and the machine wouldn't you?

So I'm now thinking that maybe the right ink stamp is on the reverse side of the fabric and has bled through to the front.

That's what I'm seeing, Ben, ink bleed.

Agree an interesting CW beehive cache sidecap. Agree the right ink stamp is the reverse of the left from bleed through of the ink.
Also note the cockade and date.
