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 a forum at the Old Lawn Mower Club. Someone would know the answer if no one here does. www.oldlawnmowerclub.co.uk/

This is an unusual mower so the value could be more than the average vintage mower but I think you will have to find out the brand name and gather more information before anyone can do research.

There are several vintage lawn mower forums that may be able to help you but I think they will want more pictures.
You will have to join each site before you can ask your questions but not all will provide value as most of the members are only interested in seeing vintage mowers.
This will be time consuming but you need more information. You will have to post on several forums to get enough information.

Reddit is the best site but it is not easy for beginners.
Join and post here and ask questions if you have problems.
