I found this in and old box in my house. Are they real?

US Brand Bond Notes the outside of the pad says.

Inside reads:

Fine paper is expressive. It expresses by its appearance and its "feel" such qualities as permanence, durability, reliability, and dignity.

U.S. BOND, use in this book has these qualities. Note its clear right color, its evenly finished writing surface, its unusual strength, and the well closed formation of its fiber. U.S. Bond contains 50% rag fiber and for this grade of paper more than meets the exciting standards of the United States Bureau.

On the first tab in small print it reads: Gibsons 536 Pa J

It looks like the book hold 100 note and there are about 10 missing.

    Thank you AR8Jason for solving my case, and everyone else for your help. I agree they are generic form I.O.U Notes.
