Yes, but standard Helms are listed as minor Artifacts, not standard magic
items. Artifacts can't be researched or manufactured according to TSR rules,
so it's not all that suprising that Helms can't be made by straight core
rules.

What is suprising is that various races and countries can't even make the
variant Helms that they do seem to make.

Although, *theoretically* an 18th level Wild Mage *might* be able to short
cut whatever process the Arcane (or their suppliers) use by using the
Wildfire spell. Of course Wild Mages are supposed to be extremeely rare, as
are high level mages.
