    Hiram Walker - Minong Copper Company (Michigan)
    This 100 share certificate in the Minong Copper Company is signed as President by Hiram Walker. Mr. Walker began his career as a small grocery proprietor and among his goods were grain, which he sold to Canadian distillers, and whiskey. During the 1850's there was an upsurge in temperance sentiment in the United States and Walker, fearing outright prohibition, moved his operations to Canada. From here he produced whiskey under his own name. In order to distinguish his product from that of his United States competitors he adopted the name Canadian Club Whiskey, a brand which survives even today. This is an attractive green and black certificate signed by one of the world's best known whiskey makers in a venture unrelated to the field for which he is primarily known. Pen cancellation lines through the Walker signature. Extremely Fine.
