Which 2x teleconverter is it? The lens database does cover the Pentax made ones: Pentax Pentax K-mount Teleconverters and Adapter Lens Reviews and Specifications - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

For comparison my 3rd party 2x A mount teleconverter was $10 but I bought it for conversion into an extension tube and wasn't too worried about the optical qualities.

As a Takumar A--it is presumably the cheap uncoated (or anyway non smc) version and likely has little value.

Somewhere in the $10 to 30 range would probably be reasonable depending on how badly you want it. If you don't like it as a teleconverter you can turn it into an A extension tube by removing the optics.
