I think the majority of the world would not assign these much monetary
value. It would also be fairly trivial to reproduce them. They are just
blocks of wood and plastic. No rich guest would know if they weren't
original. For $5,000 you probably could set up production in China for
as many fairly exact copies as you wanted for a few bucks a set.
