Detailed Item Description: This is a first presentation 2x Multi-Platinum award that would have been manufactured in 1997. It has a unique design with elaborate album art cut outs positioned above the platinum discs, giving it a #D look inside the shadow box.
It is also unique in that it recognizes both the double Platinum status of the album and a Gold single. It was likely created as a special version since it is presented to Dave Mount, who served as Chairman/CEO of WEA (Warner/Elektra/Atlantic) Records from 1993 to 2002.
The award is in completely original condition including back with manufacturer's sticker from Ill Eagle Enterprises. In Excellent condition.

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.
