I'm looking for replica prop currency that would fit in from the late 1800s, particularly California, but anything that would fit an Old West theme would work. I did this photo composition to look like it's the poker game from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. I had no currency so I used Civil War era poker chips.

I've since purchased an 1890s replica Morgan Silver Dollar that I can use, but some appropriate era paper currency would be cool too. I do have replica Civil War bills, but those are mostly northern states.

I have looked at many popular Prop Money websites, but all I can find is 1900s and on. I'm not opposed to printing and aging my own, but I've been somewhat overwhelmed and didn't want to use the wrong kind. Would this be right? Rare Five Dollar Bills from the 1880s | Price Guide | Antique Money

Side quest: I inquired awhile ago, if anyone knows the name/type of the deck of cards that was actually used in the production of Bill & Ted, I'd love to track that down (most likely a contemporary replica). All I could find was that it had a blue patterned back, and no indices.

Thanks for any help you can lend!

Here is the first draft of my Bill & Ted poker game photo, but I'm looking to do another.
