This particular one has a few issues so I can't say yet until I clean it and etc.
This size and style are usually like $2,900+ new. In great shape they should generally fetch like $800-1200 if they are more recent. Vintage / Antique ones can be crazy money depending on size and condition. Color/pattern matter a lot too. A lighter color palette may be less sought after. Karastan's darker colored, more bold floral / tribal / geometric rugs are more popular sometimes.
This is Karastan score #2 for me. My first one was $395 at a thrift shop and that was a steal lol. It's in great shape though, and I wouldn't part with it for less than $1100.

Sold mine for $450 end of last year but it was a square dial. Yours might fetch a lil more. @Cj52racers found the some one so maybe he has a better idea.
Having bought and sold several Karastan's (and kept a few), I can add that they weigh a fricking ton...and they keep their pile, meaning, they still feel thick and cushy after months, or years, of walking on them and only vacuuming and turning them every so often. They don't go flat unless you abuse them for years. I look for custom sizes, and especially runners that are the wider width. I have a 18' runner in one hall that was custom made and cost ~ $4k...picked it up for just over a hundo IIRC. Living room has a 10x14 that I got on CL for like $125 (was prob around $5k new), and bought several others on CL and sold on eBay. Worth it to get fringe repaired and rug cleaned if needed, and if you have a reputable place - I use Sharian exclusively. My thing is the Kirmin 717 - the darker classic style. As mentioned, they're machine made, which is not a bad thing...and their wool rugs are permanently moth-proof.
Avoid rugs with low spots (lots of traffic - rugs were never turned). Some repairs are OK if only visible from the back. Don't be wary if they don't have fringe - some folks order without fringe (which is my preference since they get caught up in the vacuum, or are constantly getting mussed up and OCD makes me hand-comb them, and they get soiled faster than the rug itself).
They also wear very very well. If I had to sell my house and move all of a sudden, I know I'd have $2 or $3 k on the floors no problem to help with moving expenses.
At estate sales, the first thing I do is flip up each corner to see if there's a tag; if not, take a closer look - bend it "open" at the top to see how it's made. Most are a pass, some are a grab.
Was at the gf's most of the weekend, but still managed to pull a couple things on Monday:
Nice Orvis Hook Belt, 34. Not sure if keeping or selling but if I do sell, I have 1 sold listing to go off of from our friend @SpooPoker
Warning: Sold Listing! (Click to show)
Pharrell Williams Adidas. Dusty but not very worn. 7.5 Mens.
So then I had also grabbed several J.crew shirts and a pair of pants for personal keeping. Paid about $15 for it all... but I traded them to Buffalo for these:
Eastland Sherman 1955 Boot in Oak Brown pullup leather. Worn once.
And look at that, not only are they very under-priced, but also my size. Thanks Buffalo.
I put more wear and dirt on the soles trying them on in the store for ~ 2 minutes than what was originally on em when found. I would say "never worn", but there was a little scuffing on the sides from probably 1 wear out, or perhaps these were tried on a lot at the store.
Pretty confident that if someone wore these for more than about 3-4 hours, there would be more abbrasion and soiling on them.
