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?

I say practice alto on the 4C and keep the Otto Link for when, in 1-2 years, you realize that the real horn is actually the tenor :)
Just kidding.
But seriously, keep the Otto Link, if you're not really desperate for money, because later you may regret having sold it. I know I regret having sold a 1950's Tone Master when I was playing mostly alto (not anymore).
