    I havn't seen any of that type of tile for over 20yrs, you might check with someone that sells recycled building materials. I think they were used for ceiling tiles for the most part.

    Acoustic ceiling tiles, I've never actually seen it used as a wall covering, as they're not very good for soundproofing, IMO.

    Those are 12X12 "random drill" acoustic tiles.

    The sample on the link looks a bit different, but that is what those are. The straight drill was more standard in radio stations and other buildings needing sound proofing. :)

    Those were the family romper room rage in the early sixties. Helped my dad do our ceiling with them back then.

    Don't know how authentic you wanted to go but...

    Good chance those pictured were asbestos.
