Well, if you are a pure user then, yes, the 11C and 15C would be of more value to you. However, the 10C is the rarest of all the Voyagers and those of us who fancy themselves as collectors hunt for them avidly. In fact, if you look on the "Prices & Rarity" section of the Museum, you'll see that the 10C is rated as "Very Difficult" to find, whereas the 11C is "Easy" and the 15C is "Moderate".
A few months ago, a 10C with a manual went for about $175 (I know because I bought it). Just recently, a 10C alone went for over $200 (no, I didn't get that one). You can generally get an 11C for much less than $200 and a 15C in average condition in that range as well.
If you don't fancy the 10C, I suggest you put it up for auction on eBay and use the proceeds to buy a 15C. It will be pretty close to a wash financially, I suspect, or a small gain for you.
