Looks pretty decent to me, but do you have a profile pic? It's got quite a pointy top and I'd expect that point to be quite far back.

Is it a welded construction? The pits maybe look like welds that weren't quite as nice as you might like.

Hello, to clarify everything, this helmet was done for me and original piece can be found in museum of art in Philadelphia (accession number 1977-167-53a,b). This reproduction is indeed welded which I know is not historical yet it allows me to stay in my price class. By the way I haven't received the helmet yet so I cannot give you more photos now but I enclose photo of original piece. I see some minor differences of course but I was just interested if my new helmet would get by. To your point with pointy top, it goes straight up/back and at least from this picture I would say that is not far from original, so far.

While I cannot see it from enough angles to correctly determine whether it looks good or not, from what I see it looks to be 'meh'.
For further info about why I refer you to this video from a great armor youtuber, Knyght Errant;

But I would like some more pics from more angles (sides, front with open visor) to determine it correctly.

Correcting misconceptions with misconceptions is not the greatest idea and should seek to be avoided at all costs.
