Detailed Item Description: This is an official RIAA Gold album award made in 2004, making it 17 years old. Note the fun feature of "snow" on the presentation plate. It is presented to Kelly Hugunin, a marketing executive who worked at Disney on music projects for artists including Hilary Duff, Miley Cyrus, Cheetah Girls, Selena Gomez, Joe Jonas, Demi Lovato and more. (Buena Vista and Hollywood Records are Disney labels).
The award is in Excellent condition with only some very minor mars on the frame and plexiglass. It also features what appears to be original backing paper, although it may have been rebacked since its' manufacturer's sticker is missing. Most likely this award was made by Milestone Awards and Marketing based on others obtained from the same executive.

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.
