Detailed Item Description: This in-house Dark Horse label platinum sales award for George Harrison's Cloud 9 album was presented to radio and music industry executive Charlie Foxx. The award includes an auto-pen (not an original autograph) inscribed thank you and signature of George Harrison. It was designed to thank and given exclusively to those people who helped in the production and promotion of the album.
It was produced around 1988 making this award approx. 31 years old. This award was re-framed since the plastic covering was coming off the original frame so frame and plexiglas are brand new. The internals of the award are all original and in excellent condition. The original backing paper with Fitzgerald-Hartley sticker (see last image) will be included upon request.

Notes on the condition of all vintage record 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.
