“Special” Army Helmet

I had forgotten this helmet in my collection! Could it possibly be mentioned somewhere in Nick’s fine research on Japanese helmets?! Specifically post # 31. This helmet appears to never of had a star. In its place is an encircled ink stamp which translates to "special". Liner is extremely brittle & in poor condition. Overall helmet shows use. I knew of one other in another collection. Any opinions or thoughts appreciated.
