My girlfriend found this frame of 4 notes in a charity shop.

I think (hope) she realised they weren't real notes.

Who produced them?
Why were they produced ?

@pertinax, I'm gonna move this thread over to the US paper money section of CCF as that seems like the most likely CCF subforum to get you some answers.

Spence,
Thank you. I wasn't sure. It might have been exonumia too.

Maybe printed as a souvenir of sorts. I see a 2000 South Carolina State Quarter pictured so that narrows it down to within the last 20 years. Who produced them is anybody's guess.

It appears to be some type of Bicentennial celebration currency. The date, 1788, is the SC statehood admission and the portrait is of John Rutledge, the first President of South Carolina and its first Governor after the Declaration of Independence was signed.
