      It is a long fin, commonly called a butterfly koi. The majority of the show fish people do not really consider the butterfly to be a koi, though it is a cross between a long finned carp and koi, which will develop similar color combinations. Generally they are not high dollar fish, even when grown large. When I say "not high dollar" I mean rarely will you see one go for more than a few hundred dollars, whereas the imported Japanese Nishikigoi (koi) can run into 5 figures. No fish is worth more than the next person is willing to pay for it, so if you are looking to sell, set a reasonable price and say or best offer or willing to entertain other offers.

      It is actually a long fun Kin Kabuto. Low $ value.
