It looks awesome but I was never sure what to make of this line in the helms description:
"It had a visor (after the manner of those that the Dwarves used in their forges for the shielding of their eyes), and the face of one that wore it struck fear into the hearts of all beholders, but was itself guarded from dart and fire."
Lee's depiction doesn't seem to have a "visor." What do you think?
I hadn't though of it before you mentioned it, but it looks a lot like a [url=http://www.lawrensnest.com/images/sz910914-RD.jpg:1q0vsx6t]centurion's helmet[/url:1q0vsx6t] with a dragon instead of a crest.
As to the written description, I cannot get a welders visor out of my head
