WW2 German Army M40 Helmet

WW2 German Army single decal M40 helmet. A very interesting helmet that I have not quite figured out yet. Quick summary, nice army eagle decal with goldish tint to the eagle decal, however, not a dark rich gold color. Paint appear to be a factory re-work blue-grey type paint over the entire helmet including the interior, almost like you would expect on a kriegsmarine ship. Also, neatly painted around the eagle decal as well. You do see a spec or two of the paint that appears to be on top of the eagle decal. The liner appears to be put in after the helmet was re-painted (re-issued). However, looks to have the typical wear and use of period paint, just have not seen this one before. Nice average worn condition liner and chinstrap. This helmet would make for an interesting study piece or great for display and an unusual variation. You can make out the size and maker of ET64 on the helmet and the helmet liner appears to be named as well, however, hard to make out and is quite faded.
