    It appears to be inspired by the "arrow cross" [nyilaskereszt] used as a symbol by the Hungarian fascists.

    This is probably offered as an alleged helmet for one of the three Hungarian Waffen-SS divisions, in whose divisional shields the symbol was also used. (Although it is not even certain that their shield designs actually existed during the period.)

    I don't believe in this piece at all.
