“Playboy does hereby bestow this award upon Charles August Lindner III For his lifetime subscription to Playboy Magazine and his never-ending pursuit of life’s pleasures. May he forever remain a connoisseur of beautiful women…and may he retain his lust for the good life for the rest of his years. From one Playboy to Another, Hugh M. Hefner”

Early in the 1960s my father invested $2000 with Hugh Hefner, in exchange he got a lifetime subscription to the Playboy Magazine and this plaque. He spent this money fresh out of college. Before he died I asked him why he did it. He said he could never justified it then or now, but did it anyway. He did say he never regretted the decision.
