Hi Kenneth and Welcome to the Mandolin Café. Could you post a photo or two to help us with your search.

EDIT: I did a quick Google search (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&source=hp&q=rex+mandolin&aq=f&oq=&aqi=g10) and it looks like these are budget instruments branded to Gretsch as early as 1902 (source Mugwumps.com (http://www.mugwumps.com/AmerInstMkr.html#R.)). From my search they don't seem to be highly valuable but seeing yours to compare it with those found in the google search may help you understand it's value.

If you post a picture it will be easier to identify it.
