The two known tokens from the Elko County town of Tobar. 1) YELLOWSTONE / BAR / C.Z. OLSON / S.L / STAMP / CO. / TOBAR, NEV. // GOOD FOR / ONE / DRINK: Al. Sq., 21 mm.
2) CLOVER VALLEY BAR / S.L / STAMP / CO. / TOBAR, / NEVADA. // GOOD FOR / 12Ω¢ / IN TRADE; Br. Rd., 21 mm. Established in 1908, Tobar was at first a Western Pacific Railroad construction camp. Following the normal progression of settlement in those days, the first structure was erected - a bar. The owner put a sign up proclaiming his business was the Rag Saloon. Then, to make sure he got business, he trudged up to the railroad proper where he drove a stake in the ground and nailed up a board sign that said "To Bar." Railroad officials, always looking for town names, promptly gave the place its name, Tobar.
