    Detailed Item Description: This is a Def Jam label/management platinum sales recognition award for multiple Public Enemy albums presented to late radio personality and hip-hop promoter Jeff Foss, maybe best known for his ground-breaking WRHU radio show "P5-The Post Punk Progressive Pop Party."

    It was produced around 1994 making this award approx. 29 years old. The award is in VG condition and is all original with only minor mars on the frame and plexiglass, and minor finish loss on the disc around the label. The award has been rebacked.

    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.
