Never seen anything like that before...You should mention that Cascocollecion.com is the source of your images, if they're not your own...
the cascocoleccion.com not source of images..
This helmet is sold in militaria.es for anyone interested.
looks suspicious to me.

The SS Totenkopf-Standarte "Oberbayern" received its title in July 1937, originally designated "SS Wachtruppe Oberbayern" (1934) and in 1936 as 1.SS Totenkopf Sturmbann "Oberbayern"...The helmet itself is WWI Austrian Production...I am rather suspicious of this helmet...The insignia (1927 NSDAP Eagle, Totenkopf Insignia) attached to the front is quite bizarre and not a German characteristic, in my humble opinion...I will gladly stand corrected of course!

The cuff title for this unit was introduced in 1935, I think, we have threads on it, and the evidence from the price lists.
