The passport of Ramesses II

Claim: In 1974, the legendary pharaoh Ramesses II was issued a valid Egyptian passport so that his 3,000-year-old mummy could be flown to Paris for necessary repair.

The background story might be true, but I couldn’t verify it. The picture is not a genuine passport issued in 1974. It’s just an illustration. Passports didn’t look like that in the 1970s. Also, EAN.UCC barcode is certainly not a part of genuine passport.
