TK Records 1976 label award for KC & the Sunshine Band's Part 3 album selling over a million copies. The album contained some of the group's biggest hits including "(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty" and "I'm Your Boogie Man", both of which hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and "Keep It Comin' Love" which peaked at #2.
This is a label award from Columbia Records presented to radio promotion tip sheet owner Kal Rudman of FMQB to commemorate and thank them for their help in attaining a million in sales. It's likely the award was made around in 1976-77 based on the release date of the album.

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.
