Detailed Item Description: This RIAA Gold LP award was made in 1974, making it about 50 years old. The award is presented to Charles Miller, a member of War who played flute, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones, percussion, and sang vocals.

This award is in Good to Very Good condition, especially considering its age. There are some mars on the wood frame, as is expected, along with minor staining of the matte and album miniature fading. Its backing paper has some tears but is original and does have its' original New York Frame & Picture Co. manufacturer sticker.

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 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: Our photos are zoomable so you can get a very good look. Do let us know if you want photos of any other details on our pieces and we'll be happy to provide.
