Does anyone know where the third all-gold coffin of Tut is? I assume it's with the body in the tomb but am not sure.

The third coffin, of solid gold, is in the Cairo Museum.

It's the outer coffin (the wood one covered in gold leaf) that is in the tomb.

The middle coffin (gold leaf and inlays), inner coffin (solid gold and inlays) and funary mask (solid gold and inlays) are all in Cairo museum.
