I honestly think this is from the Berlin Hoard too.
These particular style saw limited use by the SS. It was intended as a Heer tradition cap badge. The early jawless skull pattern was rarely seen by 1944. Even in 1940 it was not often seen.

Im not sure about orginality of those type of skulls
hi friederich-berthold ,would be so kind to show the skull from behind I would like to see if it was common edge the sprongs in this type of skulls? thanks.
also I have asked carlsson1982 if can hang the complete Soldier Photo right ad containing this type of skull,for to place it in a time.
are here Very rare Danziger skull in aluminium - Militaria Collectibles buy - sell at War Relics
thanks all for your comments.
It is buntmetall, much of brass, and plated in the normal manner for these things.
many thanks friederich-berthold.
in the picture below taken from (A Collector's Guild) I see exactly the skull I own , the sizes are exactly those 25mm tall by 35mm wide.
the second picture taken from (Familienverband derer v. Kleist e.V.) confirms the use of this skull in this regiment.
as I have seen the 5th cavalry regiment only participated in the Russian front ,not know how it got to arnhem this skull.
