RIAA 2x Multi-Platinum LP award for AC/DC's The Razors Edge album, which was released on Sept. 6, 1990 and by January 10, 1991 was certified double Platinum by the RIAA. 

Early success of the album was driven by the album's blistering single "Thunderstruck", which hit #5 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and which became a concert staple. "Are You Ready" and "Moneytalks" both performed well on the charts as well and the album rose as high as #2 in the U.S. and #4 in the U.K. By 2006 the album had been certified 6x Multi-Platinum.

Detailed Item Description: This is a first presentation RIAA 2x Multi-Platinum award that would have been manufactured shortly after the certification date in 1991, making it approximately 28 years old. The award is presented to Mike Smith. It is not known what role smith played in the creation or promotion of the record but he is named on several Atlantic Records/Atco record awards so it is thought he worked with that label group.

The award is in VG to Excellent completely unaltered condition with only a few minor scratches on the frame and mars on the plexiglass. It has the correct original manufacturer sticker attached on it's backing paper from Ill-Eagle Enterprises.

Notes on the condition of all vintage RIAA awards like this one: Please do not buy this item if you want a brand new piece of memorabilia. These are historical artifacts from the year they were produced. As a result they may show signs of wear. Frankly, if you see a 20 to 50-year-old award purported to be in 100% perfect condition, it might be too good to be true. After all, an antique should have "good' wear. If not, you might want to question the piece.

As to where they came from, they could have been displayed in record label offices, recording studios, artist manager's offices, radio stations, private collector's homes and yes, of course, possibly the artist's or songwriter's home. Typically, we don't know all the places they may have been over the years other than what we've stated in the description.

Finally, a word on photos: Do let us know if you want photos of any other details on our pieces and we'll be happy to provide.
