The Jimi Hendrix Experience Electric Ladyland RIAA 2x Multi-Platinum Award. This classic album was released on Sept. 6, 1968 and, while quickly going Gold by Nov, 18, 1968, was not certified 2x Multi-Platinum by the RIAA until June 16, 1998. This is likely because the label had not filed the paperwork proving the sales levels with the RIAA until that time.

Detailed Item Description: This RIAA 2x Multi-Platinum award is a first presentation "bar hologram" serial numbered award that would have been manufactured in 1998 given the album's double Platinum certification date, making it close to 30 years old. It is presented to producer and record executive Andy McKaie.
Other than some very minor frame and plexiglass mars, the award is in Very Good to Excellent condition and has a unique purple velvet covered matte and Jimi Hendrix image, which couple to really set the award off. All internals of the award appear correct but the award has been rebacked.

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.
