Auction Win, Are these real and if so are they worth anything???

I Won these at an estate auction in a Junk silver/Old Currency (Mostly $1 Silver Cert) Lot.

They look really cool but I honestly know nothing about this niche of US paper currency.

    Yes, they are real and worth about $75-$100 per sheet, which is a conservative selling price. I wouldn't sell them for less than $50/sheet. The $5 "Baby Bonds", with coupons at right are worth somewhat less, perhaps $50 for the sheet. Individual notes from these sheets generally retail for anywhere from $25 to $75 per note.

    A LARGE hoard of these was distributed during the 1970s and have been bouncing around ever since with most of it now well distributed. When first disbursed, these wholesaled around $2-$3/sheet but ten years later they were up to around $8-$10/sheet. "Wholesale" on these now is about $50/sheet.

    Collector and dealer in obsolete currency. Always buying all obsolete bank notes and scrip.

    If those prices are accurate they’ve gone up a bunch since the last time I thought about those type of things.
