Detailed Item Description: This RIAA Platinum Album award is a first presentation award that would have been manufactured in 1998, making it about 25 years old. It features the great album cover art with early Oasis logo and photo by Michael Spencer Jones that pictures the band behind a mansion with various objects including a 1972 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow that was actually partly submerged in the pool (i.e. not a photoshop creation). The award is presented to Victoria Wenzel, a booking agent in the music industry.

The award is in VG to Excellent condition with only very minor wear on the frame and plexiglass. It is all original and note that a tear in the backing paper has been taped to help prevent dust intrusion, but it does have its' Ill Eagle Enterprises manufacturer sticker.

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.
