    See if the signatures are in ink, or have been photo copied.
    These are often replicas, even very old ones.

    Appears to be ink and the ink changes from a dark brown to a light brown in some areas

    Good morning. They look fine to my old eyes. Looks like the 10 and 20 Exchange notes are an uncut pair. Notes of that type are usually called "remainders". Meaning they were left over and not used (issued).
    The Baton Rouge notes are printed originally on a sheet as 1,2,3 dollar notes. So having 3 with the same serial is normal. You will probably see these style notes on the reverse of the Exchange notes. They used the remainder sheets to print the Exchange notes on the blank reverse.
    The Baton Rouge notes are listed in Confederate State reference books as LA 4, 5 and 6 for $1, $2 and $3. The one and two notes list from $15 in Good to $100 in Uncirculated. The $3 note is better, going from $40 to $260. These prices are retail and are from George S Cuhaj's book from 2012.
    There is a coin dealer with a website in Panama City and he even has $10 Holly Springs note for sale on his site. It is graded a AU 58 which is higher than yours would grade. I know nothing about this company but their name is Coin and Bullion Reserves.
    Good luck!
