To my knowledge no one has a list of drawing numbers (DN837 is likely "drawing number") for the Story Aircraft Company, so it's going to be hard to know what it was designed to be used on.

I think it was manufactured in the 1930's, based on what little bit of history I found here (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Union_Aircraft_Company).

I'd just get some good photos, provide an honest description and list it on eBay. I've found that listing a low opening bid is the best stimulus to encourage bidding, but if you wanted a suggestion for a starting price I'd say $700, which almost certainly would be outbid.

(Sometimes it even helps to link to this discussion in the listing.)
