Having been an archaeologist who has worked on Civil War battlefields, a museum curator who's worked with Civil War collections, and a Park Ranger who's worked at Civil War battlefields with associated national cemeteries attached,  all I can say is - I've never seen one of these from a bonafide context.  That they're apparently starting to surface recently in the market causes me to question why that is they haven't been well documented yet. And that the few I see doing a quick internet search are marked to Confederate states and have a year stamped on them, also makes one wonder just why that might be.
