Old sail

Not sure what to do with this old sail. Came with the boat when I bought her but don’t need it. Looks like the sacrificial and parts of sail in rough shape. I’m not even sure if it’s a main sail or jib. (New to sailing) I have a roller fueling main on the bought. I took some pictures, but didn’t have time or space to fully unfold the sail.
Looking to get rid of it. Let me know if you are interested. Came off a 384. It’s currently in Daytona FL, but I will be headed up the coast towards WV in a couple of days.

It looks like it might be a storm headsail. Not sure what that zipper compartment is for. Maybe it is made to zipper over the existing rolled-up jib. How heavy is the material? Is it torn up or just dirty? If it's a storm sail it might be good to keep it for cruising.

The sail looks in good shape. The sacrificial is in bad shape. It has the part that slides in to a roller furler, I guess that zipper is to just zipper around the back side of the roller furler. Not sure if it’s a storm sail. My 38 was turned into a solent rig and have a small staysail I use in heavy winds.
