Please help me find the value of my saxophones!!!

I recently lost my uncle and inharited several of his Alto, tenor and baritone saxophones and other brass instruments. I would appreciate any help pointing me in the right direction to find out which ones a worth keeping I used to play the trumpet quite well, but allways wanted to play the tenor saxophone. I would like to know which one would be the one I can learn on and worth keeping. Please HELP!!!

   Here are some of the saxophones I'd like more info on.

1. Crown-serial # is: C6746 it is a brass tenor saxophone.

2. Emperor-serial # I cant find, it is silver plated tenor saxophone.

    "Crown" and "Emperor" are probably merchandiser, not factory, brands.  It was common for amateur market saxophones to be sold under merchandiser "stencil" brands.  Value depends on a number of things, such as condition and overall playability but the top value of stencil brand horns is not very high.  As to which one you should keep to learn on, a teacher or repairman who sees them first hand could give you a better answer than anybody on a web forum.
