Sounds like it has the wrong kind of ignition switch. Is the tractor battery ignition, with points? It should be. If it is make sure that you get a switch that is for battery ignition and not magneto ignition.
A batter ignition switch provides fire to the coil and a magneto switch grounds out the mag.

Harvey: It is battery ignition with points. It cranked and ran fine when I first got it. With the ignition in on position I get fire to the points but when I engage the starter there is no fire to points or plug. With the starter disengaged and the ignition on with the engine still drifting to a stop, I have fire to the points and the plug.

Either change the ignition switch to a battery switch, or trace the wires to see if they are hooked up correctly.
The symptoms you describe indicates its a magneto switch and not a battery switch.

Harvey, If the tractor ran fine at one point with this switch in the dash, then it isn't a switch designed for magneto ignitions that ground out the mag. It's just a switch that has failed due to wear and tear.

You are right, the switch is probably wore out.
I have bought garden tractors that had the wrong switch on them.
I had one that would start when I turned loose of the key, but it was in good condition and the spinning of the engine after I turned loose of the key it would start.
