The CopperRange.org Discussion Board: Upper Peninsula Railroads: #26 Steam locomotive

My grandfather worked for Copper Range for years. He passed away 3 years ago. My parents have acquired a Head Light for what looks like the #26 Steam Locomotive. I can only assume it was from the #26 that was retired in 1954. Our family has donated all of my grandfather’s railroad stuff to the Lake Linden Museum. With the exception of this light and a few signal lights. Unfortunately, It doesn't have the emotional value to us that my grandfather had. We are thinking about selling it on Ebay. Any Idea what it's worth?
