    I agree we need better photos of the fur. But it looks like a circa late 1930s -1940 coat, made of what used to be called "Hudson Seal" and other trade names for dyed Coney or rabbit fur, made to imitate seal fur.

    The clasp and the label looks older than 1940s, more like 1920s or earlier. But the length and style of the coat looks more 30s - 40s. Hard to see the shape of the coat.

    The coat is really dark. I just don't know what to do with it. It is very beautiful but to small for me

    Those clasps are gorgeous!

    Unfortunately we can't give valuations here on the forums, but you could look up sold results of auctions like Ebay.

    Probably the types of fur that Barbara suggested above as it looks to be a fur made to look like seal, but not actual seal.

    Are you able to get under the hemline to see if the back of the fur/fabric is actually skin or fabric?
    As I am seeing some red highlights around the edges this to me indicates it might actually be seal.
    Seal is endangered and it should not be sold online.
