Detailed Item Description: This large and impressive RIAA Platinum award is a first presentation award that would have been manufactured in 2003-04, making it approximately 18 years old. It features a special frame and is presented to Korn themselves (spelled complete with backwards "R" on the presentation plate).
The award is all original with a serial number RIAA hologram seal and backing paper with Jewel Box Platinum manufacturer sticker. The backing paper is original but has tears and cuts which have been taped to help prevent dust intrusion. It is in VG condition with only a very few minor mars on the frame and plexiglass, and a small area of minor surface damage on the upper side of the inner frame.

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.
