Detailed Item Description: This is a first presentation Platinum award that would have been manufactured in 2006 making the award 14 years old. It is presented to Cammie Dunaway, then an executive with Yahoo! Music.
The award features artwork from the album and is in completely original condition including back with manufacturer's sticker from Jewel Box Platinum. In VG condition, the award does have one deeper mar on the edge of the frame (see image) and a couple of other frame imperfections, as commonly seen on awards over 10 years old. These mars do not significantly impact the appearance of the award when hung on a wall.

Notes on the condition of all vintage RIAA awards: 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.
