Short Story Long:
This rug is a gem for an upholsterer, designer, seamstress, etc. It is almost 100 square feet of Persian goodness ready for your next project. It was woven in the city of Sarouk in Iran and has a very classic look. The rug has issues, obviously, the worst of which I have tried to picture. Though the wear is extensive on the ends of this rug, the central portion is in awesome shape. Even the sides and ends are original. With the right sofa and club chairs, you could cover up the worn areas, and it would look like money. No, seriously, unworn antique Sarouks are a whole lot of money.
You could also do a poor man's repair job on this rug and just color away with a good set of permanent markers (and let dry). The low piles that you see in the photos expose areas of the rug's white foundational threads. If colored, these threadbare areas will look a lot less noticeable, and you could pull off using this rug its entirety. (A lot of times when you see an antique rug for an unbelievable price in an online auction, this is what has been done to it...look at you becoming an educated consumer!) Get a good rug pad or layer over carpeting or sisals so your feet don't notice that the rug is threadbare either. Then, after a few years of that, upholster yourself a lovely bench or headboard.
Just as a warning for you wannabe rug dealers (haha, are there any of those?), this rug isn't cost effective to repair unless you yourself are a rug weaver with nothing else to do.
