Do you mean the notes are sealed in lucite, like this?...

Is there no way of salvaging these bills?

I think what Gary is trying to say is that it's unlikely that there are 100 real notes inside the plastic.  There are probably just 2 notes... one on top and one on bottom, with a lot of filler in between.

Given that this is the more likely case, are you still certain you want to open up your novelty pen holder/paperweight?  This is not really the right kind of site to ask.  At the very most, the only experience anyone has here is one of the moderators who owned a "break in case of emergency" novelty item (last seen in the image below)...

I was told by a dealer with a lot of knowledge that lucite will desintegrate if you drop it in a bucket that contains a special chemical. The chemical will not damage coins but for paper I'm really not sure.
