Original M40 shell (likely Quist made). Eagle is DEFINITELY post-war recently applied and likley a fake. This was likley a ground-dug helmet that has been washed in acid, treated with oil of some sort and then had a decal applied.

 

There are plenty of untouched orginals for sale at reasonable prices these days.

I don't know much from helmets but you clearly see that the decal is on some places over the rust, so it has definitely been added later on.
