The mummy was among the first to have an autopsy and was opened in July 1881 and repeated in 1886. It had been badly damaged by ancient plunderers and had fallen into pieces. The well preserved head is broken off, all four limbs are detached, and the feet are severed. The king has a small, narrow, and elliptical face with a prominent nose. At the time of his death, the king was almost completely bald. Smith quotes Rudolf Virchow, who stated that although the King Thutmosis III had a long reign, his mummy had a juvenile appearance.
