Your Confederate Pattern 1853 Type 2 is very rare {solid bands held by springs}, assuming you have it.

This type 2 was not mentioned in CS or state contracts {that are known so far}, so in all probability they were purchased as surplus by the civilian agents who were scouring the markets to fill CS contracts, and went into the bottom of the crates as to 'shadow" the band setup..
