You can sell this working or not because there is a lot of lawnmower collectors out there. They have special forums that they meet to talk about, help each other, and trade or buy mowers on. If it were me I'd clean this up some and check it out to see if it still runs. It just looks very dirty from use and some gas should cut through the oil and dirt on the outside of the mower. You may need to get some new spark plugs and flush out the tank to get it working again.

If you can get it working a collector will pay a bit more for this. On average, the push mowers sell for $60-75 and the gas ones sell for double this price if they are working. I would suggest that you join a lawnmower forum because they are the best places to talk to people about this mower and find a buyer for it.

Kee Mowers have a 50-year history in the outdoor power equipment segment. The products were most recently manufactured by Hoffco Power Equipment. Ariens Company, Brillion, Wisconsin, a lawn and garden-equipment manufacturer, has acquired the Kee Mower brand in 2010. Ariens produced the Kee products at its manufacturing facility in Opp, Alaska, and sold Kee Mowers under the Gravely brand of products.

Briggs & Stratton began production in 1908 and are still making small motors today. Only in 1953 they made the first lightweight aluminum engine and it was a revolution in the small engine industry. The price of Briggs & Stratton Lawn Mower, made in 1950's is $100: www.ebay.com/.../264219988575

Your Briggs & Stratton engine is cast-iron. Here on sale is a mower from the same period as yours, because it has a Briggs & Stratton engine model 5S, and this model was made in the 1940s: www.ebay.ca/.../383031389814?hash=item592e732e76.... It is fully operational and functions, the price is $200. This price seems reasonable to me, as a non-working Briggs & Stratton engine the same model on sale for almost $100 www.ebay.com/.../254191961600

There is no lawn mower with the name 'Daytona' but your mower is a 'Dayton' and you can find some information online about this brand - but not much.

If you check the antique/vintage lawn mower forums you'll find that most believe this was made by MTD and here is a link of an MTD mower that I believe is just like yours. Photos about mid-way the page.

There are several vintage lawn mower forums that you may be able to join and ask your question as these people can many times find a lot more information than I can.
You will have to join to ask questions:

Sorry but this is all that I could find so maybe someone on these sites can help you with finding the value.
There are several additional forums online so just Google vintage lawn mower forums to find more.
