Sigma 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 APO Macro

I came across this lens on Craig's list and since I'm looking into purchasing zoom lens got interested by it.
Amazingly, there's not alot of info on the web regarding this model.
According to seller, this is not DG, not D, not Super, not DL.
Just what title said.
I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this lens and what would its value be.
Seller is asking $150CAD.
If it matters, serial number is
Will it even work with my K-X?

If it's for Pentax, then yes it will work with the K-x. If it's an AF lens, it will AF on the K-x. If it's an autoexposure lens (has an "A" on the aperture ring), it will have autoexposure on the K-x.

But I don't see any reason to pay $150 for a used sigma 70-300 of unknown vintage when a brand new one is barely any more than that.
