The website printed on the binos didn't yield any clues? ;-)

It looks like one of these: http://www.bigbinoculars.com/2540m.htm

Price will depend on condition and whether the tripod is included.
I see this one sold for $690 here on Astromart:

And another for $750:

You might get a little more since they are currently unavailable new. On the other hand there were many different versions of these on the market over many years, so there are many out there, which might erode the re-sale value somewhat vs. new prices.

Yep - they list for $2000 on bigbinoculars.com. If I really want something used to sell, I put at ~60% list ... some "hot items" of course will attract a lot more. Tom
