Unique and historic, this is a Canadian RCA label award (i.e. non-RIAA) celebrating Three Dog Night's Harmony album presented to the group themselves. Released in 1971, the group's seventh studio album produced several hits including "An Old Fashioned Love Song", which reached #4 on the Billboard Top Pop Singles chart, a cover version of Hoyt Axton's "Never Been to Spain" which went to #5, and "The Family Of Man" which pearked at #12. The album itself went to #8 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.
The plate on the award reads:
Presented to Three Dog Night for outstanding Canadian sales of "Harmony" DSX-50108 August 1973 RCA Ltd. Canada

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.
