Need a little advice

I've just unherited a nice alto mark VI 1956, and having a great time learning to play the sax :mrgreen:
Along with the sax I got some mouthpieces and I discovered that some of them was for the tenor. Threre was only a selmer jazz metal for the alto and this is not optimal for me, since I'm a beginner. I bought a yamaha 4c, but it would be nice if I could get a better piece for the alto (e.g. a Phil-tone Meyer 5M).
Here are some of the pieces, the question is what can I expect to get doing a trade-off or should I rather sell them?

If you are starting out, use the 4C and wait a while. You can't go wrong with a Selmer S-80 C* as it matches well to your horn and has been the standard for years. I use the same in an S-80 D and I have played for over 50 years.
Nice catch on the great horn!
