What is this mysterious mammal???

I have had this taxidermied animal for over a decade, but have still not been able to find out what it is - it looks like a pangolin to me (tail and feet) but the ridges on the back are wrong. The guy I bought it off didn't know what it was and my enquiries at the local museum have let to a dead end.

 

Of course, with taxidermy you have to allow for someone doing a bad job, but even so I still cannot figure it out and it is definitily not a composite animal. It is approx 430mm long. Here are some pics. I hope someone can help me with this and put my deliberation to rest! Whenever someone asks me what it is, I am a little embarassed not to know!
