‘Dark Side of the Moon’ Platinum Plaque Up For Auction
You can hang a platinum album plaque for Pink Floyd‘s classic The Dark Side of the Moon on your wall — if you have the money for it.
Late keyboardist Rick Wright‘s plaque is up for sale via Nate D. Sanders Auctions, with bidding through 8 p.m. ET on Thursday (June 22). The plaque comes with a letter of authenticity from his widow, Franka, who says that, “I hope anyone that has any of Rick’s items enjoys them as much as I do.”
Wright’s platinum album for The Wall brought in more than $40,000 during a 2005 auction. Bids can be placed at NateSanders.com.
Wright died on September 15, 2008 at the age of 65.
