Default Japanese helmet info needed!

Iím pretty thrilled with this new navy helmet Iíve acquired, which I believe to be an early model. Iíve been unable to find any helmet like it, and the closest matches Iíve seen are models from the early 1930s.
The helmet has no ventilation holes.
Would any IJN/ IJA helmet experts be able to weigh in on this?
Cheers

It's a late navy last ditch/civilian defense helmet. These were worn by factory, Arsenal, dock workers, shipbuilders etc.

The one that went to California a few months ago had kanji that tied it to Naval base guards.
