Vintage, original, authentic, unrestored 1970s Aerosmith Rocks RIAA Gold Album Award. Rocks went platinum almost immediately so this must be 1970s issue. Presented to The Record Plant, where Aerosmith recorded many of their albums. I have owned this since the late 1980s and it was never on display in my home. My intent was to have a frame shop refresh this item, but I could never bring myself to have it done. It has a nice display presence as-is with a vintage feel. It took 40 years to look this old. This award does show wear and tear and is has some fading. This would be an easy and somewhat inexpensive restoration for any frame shop. The actual gold album and the engraved plaque appear to be in excellent condition. Album label, album photo, and the black background are all faded but could easily be reproduced and/or replaced if you so desired. Record label has started to lift from the gold album. Frame shows wear to the gold leaf but could easily be refinished. No major damage to the frame. Rear paper backing for the frame has been removed. The Record Plant is an important part of Aerosmith history and Rocks was a significant album. Rare authentic vintage memorabilia.
