eBayer tenmile5h5c ( 2629) offers this pair of drumsticks described as Civil War era, eBay item no. 250505454093 with a low starting bid of $35:

Here are 2 original, U.S. Civil War era drum sticks in very good condition and one with damage as shown. One of the sticks is split at the end but it should display well when repaired. The sticks are made of dark wood which is very sound. The sticks measure 16.875" long. An original pair of Civil War drum sticks that will display well.

Just as a baseball player wouldn't go to bat with a cracked bat, a drummer wouldn't play with a split stick, even if "repaired". So, the playing segment of the market may not want this set.
