Detailed Item Description: This RIAA Platinum serial number combo award was made in the mid-1990s, making it about 25 years old. It is a first presentation award that is presented to the Rolling Stones. It's not completely clear why this award was presented to the Stones, but the message on the presentation plate seems to indicate that they have been an inspiration to the artists that have achieved success on the Columbia label, and vice versa in some cases.
The award is in Good to VG condition complete with original backing paper with Ill Eagle Enterprises manufacturer's sticker. The bottom right corner of the frame has been repaired with tape (see image) but other than this and minor mars on the frame and plexiglass, it displays nicely on a wall.

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.
