Re: Disappointed in Triple Play "plaque"

If you will look on the ARRL site, you will find that the 5BDXCC award in now a certificate. The 5BDXCC “Plaque” is now a piece of plexiglass, which in fact looks almost identical to the certificate. The wood plaque is gone. Your choice, plastic or paper the look the same. For the $60.00(?) for the plaque you can get the $12.00 certificate, and buy a $10.00 plexiglass frame at Wally World and save $40.00. My understanding is the plexiglass is not numbered (I could be wrong on this). Challenge “Plaque” is plastic also. I received no pin for my 5BDXCC. Saw none offered.
Not a happy camper.

Good afternoon all. These are awards with which I am only vaguely familiar.
My 5 band DXCC and DX Challenge plaques are beautiful but did come at
a cost. And it was substantial. Is the same true here or is it closer to my original DXCC certificate from the 70's which came rolled up in a tube?
