King Tutankhamun's death mask

Most Egyptian funerary mask are made of solid gold, but in 1939, archaeologist, Pierre Montet, discovered the tomb of Pharaoh Psusennes, & his entire sarcophagus is pure silver, the only one ever discovered. Its discovery had little fan fare because it was the eve of World War II, & Egyptologists didn't want it to fall into enemy hands. The discovery is revered to be equal to the discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922, but most of the world is unaware of its existence.
