RIAA gold record award for ‘We Can Work It Out.’ Framed to an overall size of 13.25 x 17.25. In fine condition, with torn backing on reverse. Certified gold on January 6, 1966, ‘We Can Work It Out’ was The Beatles’ sixth consecutive #1 single on the Billboard chart, a record at the time not even matched by Elvis Presley. The song spent a total of 11 weeks in the top 40; the b-side, ‘Day Tripper,’ peaking at #5, marking the third time both sides of a Beatles single entered the top ten. The engraved plaque reads: ‘Presented To Capitol Records to Commemorate the Sale of More than One Million Copies of the Capitol Records Pop Single Record ‘We Can Work It Out.’ The frame, mat and large play-hole label suggest this ‘white-mat’ award was produced in the early 1970s.
