They're both equal. And different. You will not be considered any better or worse regardless of your choice. So it really depends on what you find more attractive.

You're 50 so my guess is that you are not aiming for big red or any other bus driver job. Even if you did, the choice would not make a difference. The bus operators are looking for only a few things; you can breathe, you are trainable, and that is just about it.

What are your goals? What experience do you have now? How's the job, the pay?

If it were me I'd take the 146...

It's hard to say without having a rough idea of your background, and more about the jobs on offer. I'd be thinking about pay. What does a King Air captain make these days? What does a 146 F.O. make? I haven't looked for a job in decades so I'm out of the loop here, but I'd wager the two jobs are ballpark-ish similar in pay? If you're a 146 F.O. and are eligible for an upgrade eventually, there's a way to basically double your income. How does a King Air captain double his income?

I admit I could be out to lunch here because I have no idea of the remuneration involved in these particular positions. Just something to think about, though. If I was in your shoes, I'd be tempted by either offer. They are both nice planes to fly.
