Selmer soloist D mouthpiece

Haven't played sax in 19 years (since graduating college). I have a 1954 Buescher Aristocrat which is in pretty shabby shape. I also played with a Selmer Soloist D mouthpiece. I never really cared how good a horn I had; I just knew that I always had a better tone than the player next to me for some reason. Now, my 11 yr. old son has started to play and I am interested in quality al the sudden. Can anyone tell me how good a mouthpiece I have? Also, what is the difference between the F, C and D models of the Soloist? Thanks!!!

Does the shank of the mouthpiece have a scroll on it or is it an S-80 (smooth)?
Only a guess from watching ebay. If it is a long shank, I would say $200 and if it is a Short Shank, maybe $500-700 if it is really nice.
It is like these $1,000 cars with $3,000 wheels. A Yamaha YAS-23 for $300 and a Soloist mouthpiece for $500. I have bought horns on ebay just for the mouthpieces. I bought a Chu tenor for $150 and sold the 2 mouthpieces in the case for $700.
