    I think its a Japanese military policemans cape. However the ones I have seen are brown, and yours looks gray, (assuming the colour is correctly reproduced in the pictures) so I would like someone elses opinion to confirm. The rank insignia is for sergeant major.

    No im sorry I really dont know the value, but it is not a common item and would certainly interest quiet a few collectors. I have just found it in 'Uniforms and equipment of the Imperial Japanese army in WW2' by Mike Hewitt, and I can confirm it is a military policemans cape.
