Default Please help me to figure out a price

This might be odd but I have found a lens couple of years ago. I have tried to give it back but no one answered to my ads.
So 2 years later I have this lens and would like to sell it.
It works on my Canon SLR but I am not planning to take pictures on film anymore. But it also has been tried on Canon DSLR and it also works.
It looked brand new when I found it. But online I cannot seem to get the price figured out. So I think it is about $150 but it might as well be $500.

I will try to describe everything that is on the lens.

SIGMA DG (both written in gold)
70-300mm1:4-5.6

It has a switch for "NORMAL" or "MACRO (200-300)"
AF and M
Cap on the back says for Canon AF

58mm
and it is made in Japan

It does not say anywhere on it that there is an Image Stabilization.

Thank you

Would it have to say OS on it to be stabilized?
$150 that's what I thought.
Thank you.
How much do you think I could sell it for?
There are no scratches or any sign of wear.

OS is sigma's designation for a stabilized lens.

The stabilized version is relatively new. If you've had this for a couple of years, it's definately not the stabilized version.

And it's not very good. If you can get $100 for it, take it and don't look back.
