Based on its age, and its bulky appearance, I'mma go with Rubik's brand. Could still be wrong.

If you can/have taken it apart, internal pictures would help identify it.

I think it's one of the original Rubik's Brand 5x5x5s, but I could also be wrong. If it is though, that's a good collectors item.

The Wahn's color scheme is consistent with your pictures, but you didn't show enough sides to be positive. It's white-opposite-blue, green-opposite-yellow, and red-opposite-orange. The Wahn's orange stickers were day-glo fluorescent. The pieces had mold-identifiers

The weight is a good match for the Wahn in a list of puzzle weights I posted a while back.

The Wahn was physically the same cube as Meffert's original Professor Cubes, the Bandelow Cubes, and the Krell Cubes.

The interior parts should have letters molded into them, like these edge pieces:
