    There is a maverick Queen City Bakery token attributed to Dallas, TX, but it is good for one loaf. There are non-mavericks from that same bakery for 5Ę and 10Ę loafs. Can you post pictures?

    No pic, just a description from tokencatalog.com. Note that it is 26mm across the widest point, 10 scallops, and aluminum. This particular one was probably attributed to Dallas because other tokens are known from the business that have town and state on them, so I wouldn't bet the farm on that attribution being good. If yours doesn't match the description exactly, then all bets are off:
    Dallas, Texas, U.S.A.

    Gosh, I thought everyone knew that Cincinnati is often referred to as the Queen City. The 1912 Bradstreet lists 59 businesses that have Queen City in their name including a Queen City Bakery.

    Yabbut... Cincy isn't the only one. There are towns with the official name of Queen City in MO & TX, plus there is a whole list of towns with Queen City as a nickname: Allentown, PA, Bangor, ME, Beach Haven, NJ, Buffalo, NY, Burlington, VT, Charlotte, NC, Clarksville, TN, Cumberland, MD, Del Rio, TX, Denver, CO, Dickinson, ND, Helena, MT, Manchester, NH, Marquette, MI, Meridian, MS, Moore, OK, Plainfield, NJ, Poughkeepsie, NY, Seattle, WA, Sioux Falls, SD, Springfield, MO, Staunton, VA, Titusville, PA, Tuscaloosa, AL, & Virginia, MN (per the ever-useful but often inaccurate WikiPedia). Besides, the bakery might have been named by a guy who was from one of the Queen Cities and wanted a reminder of home.
