Board Games/real or game?


My Friend Found These In between the logs in the walls of her houseThat she is redoing. they range from $500, $5,000, & $20,000. there were at least 20 of them, found with an old piece of a boom dated 1814. we were just wondering if they were real or if they had any value... any information on them would be great thank you

Hi Tiffany,
Thanks for your interesting question.  I have received this question several times in the past.  These "Non-Negotiable Demand Notes" are from a set of play money (with 7 different denominations) used in the Game of Life game by Milton Bradley.  Wish I had better news for you. Feel free to contact me again if you have any other questions.
Best regards,

Board Games
