Detailed Item Description: This RIAA 2x Multi-Platinum LP award must have been made in 1991 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 Russ Bach, who was a long time executive at numerous companies, including serving as CEO of EMI Music Distribution in the 1990s.
The award is approximately 29 years old and is in Very Good condition with only some very minor mars on the plexiglass and frame. 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.
