1954 flying cloud whale Tail

Today I bought a 1954 Flying Cloud whale Tail made in California. I have been reading about the 54 and it seems to be a rare one. This one is #7631. I could find 13 on the internet but only 3 that have the Whale tail. Is it that rare? I was thinking about selling it and I'm not sure what to ask. Help. Thank, My name is Ernie.

I was intrigued by your question. I knew nothing about whale tails (humpback whale tails I know).
Anyway, here is a starting point.
