Official US RIAA Certified TRIPLE PLATINUM Award issued to commemorate American album sales in excess of 1,000,000 copies, awarded directly to a London/Polygram Rep who was influential in the success of the album. This nicely framed and glazed award measures 17" x 33" in size, and features the full sized album cover artwork featuring the 3-D Lenticular moving image at the top, three platinum LP discs below with the authentic, custom engraved traditional pre-millennial RIAA strip dedication plate at the bottom. All mounted on a white background with blue surround and black metal frame. This has been re-glazed from glass to Perspex many years ago and still looks stunning.

This copy comes with an extra booklet picture sleeve which has been AUTOGRAPHED & dedicated to the US Capitol executive who was influential to the success of this album, signed by Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor, Sterling Campbell and Warren Cuccurullo in a gold pen across the front with Simon on the back with agreat dedication – this is the only item we've had with the full 5 member line-up from this period, all signed on the same item. Sterling was only in the band for this album, from late 1989 to early 1991 – very hard to find this full line-up signatures on a single item, must have for any fan.
