Detailed Item Description: This RIAA 2x Multi-Platinum LP award must have been made in 1995 given the album's 2x Multi-Platinum certification date and the fact that R hologram awards were made from 1990-97. This award was given to industry executive Liz Heller, who was at the time EVP at Capitol Records.
The award is approximately 25 years old and is in VG condition. Other than a minor bit of separation on one side of the frame covering and some discoloration of the lower part of the original backing paper (which has not affected the front at all), the award is in Very Good condition. The award's backing paper includes its original Fitzgerald Hartley manufacturer's 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.
