I honestly don't care what it's monetary value might be. I can find nothing that might be an identifying mark of any kind. Any more info you could provide me with would be greatly appreciated. Unfortunately, I'm afraid I can't tell you a whole lot about it.
I would just like to know a little about it's history and heritage. In any case I intend to enjoy playing it for a long time to come. It looks like a pre-WWII instrument and I too would guess that it is made from mahogany.

Tom Favilla I inherited this Gibson TU from my mother, she inherited it from her stepdad who died in 1974. I'm just assuming Regal, as I've only seen Regals with this tri-color inlay, and have seen a few on the fancier side (fancy pants, redhead) but this one looks older. I've only found one reference to this online that dates it circa 1919, with no other info.
Based on the tuning pegs on your ukulele I would date it to around the first half of the 1920s.
The style 0 was a plain mahogany model, the style 2k is a fancier model made from Hawaiian koa wood. Martin made the 2k model like yours from the late teens through the early 1930s, when they started using a decal on the headstock.
