Reproduction of converted Heer M42 billed Einheitsfeldmütze, as was commonly done at the time, this standard issue M42 cap (made of original wool) had a bill made of reproduction fabric, added giving the appearance of the popular M43 cap. Converted M42 caps are often observed in period photos and they are not so rare!
Germans used whatever they had to make visors for conversion their M42's, sometimes even scraps.
First I made the m42 cap from the original WWII German cloth, then I made the visor from a copy of the feldgrau cloth, then I ripped front part of the M42 cap and sewed the visor with a different thread to mimic the original process of conversion. (SEWING OF VISOR MAY BE SLOPPY!! - same as originals) It was time consuming to make it properly.
REAL CONVERSION OF M42, not M43 with grommets!
