King Tut's Beard!

Egypt's Heritage Task Force says it will sue the antiquities minister over a botched repair to the Golden Funerary Mask of Tutankhamun (1323 BC) housed in the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities. During the removal of the mask from its case to repair lighting, King Tut's beard was accidentally knocked off. A hasty repair by a nervous curator left a crust of dried epoxy glue on the beard (CLICK).
