Sika have a "knife edge" over the top of their brow tine too.
So for me those brow tines are leaving the main beam at an angle that would suggest sika, they are too long and rounded to be true sika i would say.
Also, sika antler tends to be smoother whereas red tend to have that kind of pearling effect.
The general shape of the antlers seems sika-y too.
The skull looks too big to be sika though.
Difficult with just photos but it has traits of both animals, i'd like to have it in my hands to be totally sure though.

I think it is a skull of a Sika Deer, and the deer was adult enough.
