Full Description

1964 original RIAA white matte gold 45 award "presented" to The Beatles commemorating the sale of over one million copies of "A Hard Day's Night." This is the large playhole version with the RIAA logo engraved on the plate. Although there was an earlier version of this award which had the RIAA logo on a separate attached "coin", this one was likely made in late 1964. As was typical, awards that were presented to "The Beatles" were usually given to a very select few people (in addition to the artist), who made a significant contribution to the work

Genuine 1950s & 1960s gold record awards are extremely rare, especially in the RIAA white matte style. In many cases no more than 10-20 of each were ever made. Based on the quantities you may see online and in some auction houses, you may think otherwise. The reason they may not seem rare is that many of those are actually very convincing counterfeits or reproductions. Also, in some cases, the awards have been "restored" using modern replica parts. This particular award is 100% authentic, all original and guaranteed by us with no time limit. In addition, this award has NEVER been opened and still has all its original backing paper intact (though it has some tears).

Frame has a few small nicks and disc is slightly oxidized. "New York Frame & Picture Co." sticker on back is missing. Includes Rockaway Records Letter of Authenticity.
