Detailed Item Description: This RIAA 10x Multi-Platinum award is a first presentation award that would have been manufactured in 1999 making this award approximately 22 years old. This award was given to music executive Michael McVay, who worked this project at radio.
The award is all original with Ill-Eagle manufacturer's sticker on the backing paper. It does have one interesting error in that the presentation plate indicates the award is for Dion's equally successful 1996 album Falling Into You, yet the album miniatures are for Let's Talk About Love. This award overall is in Very Good condition, with only a mar or two on the frame (see image for only significant mar).

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: 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.
