It has a single decal on the left side, now barely visible ... it seems the classic symbol of ss with the background in gold and edged in black, but it seems strange to me that there is no trace of the double-sig runes.
Inside are reported the size ET66 and batch number 354.
Any idea / suggestion?

I just came across this thread. The shell is Wehrmacht, the decal for SS helmets was on the right side. I think that the normal eagle decal has changed colour with age and was originally silver. Age damage has obscured the eagle, but that is what the decal is. It is possible that it was Kriegsmarine, with a gold eagle.
It is a nice single decal Wehrmacht M40 helmet shell, a good collector's piece.
