Tire replacement quandary

I'm getting ready to sell my first bike. It's a well-used Trek 7200 (not fx) so the price will be low.

I put puncture resistant tires on the old bike. One tire has maybe 600 miles on it -- would it make sense to put that on my newer bike? I'd be swapping an older puncture-resistant tire for a newer regular tire. I'm not sure if that's a good move since I don't really know what sort of lifespan tires have.

If I don't swap out the tires, I probably would buy a puncture-resistant tire for the newer bike (at least for the rear wheel).

I have recently fallen in love with Schwalbe Marathons, esp. for winter riding.
