Hiram Walker Resources Ltd, with head offices in Toronto, was a Canadian holding company with diverse interests. The company was incorporated as the Consumers' Gas Co in 1848 in the Province of Canada. In 1979 shareholders of Cygnus Corporation Ltd and Home Oil Co Ltd approved their own joint merger, and subsequently one with Consumers Gas. A year later, stockholders approved the merger of distiller Hiram Walker-Gooderham & Worts Ltd with the company and its wholly owned subsidiary, Home Oil Co Ltd. The name change to Hiram Walker Resources Ltd followed. In a complex series of transactions, major interests in the company were acquired by Gulf Canada Corp (controlled by the REICHMANN FAMILY ) and the British firm Allied-Lyons in 1987. Later that year Gulf's interests were transferred to another Reichmann controlled company, GW Utilities of Toronto and HWR ceased to exist.

About Specimens

Specimen Certificates are actual certificates that have never been issued. They were usually kept by the printers in their permanent archives as their only example of a particular certificate. Sometimes you will see a hand stamp on the certificate that says "Do not remove from file".

Specimens were also used to show prospective clients different types of certificate designs that were available. Specimen certificates are usually much scarcer than issued certificates. In fact, many times they are the only way to get a certificate for a particular company because the issued certificates were redeemed and destroyed. In a few instances, Specimen certificates we made for a company but were never used because a different design was chosen by the company.

These certificates are normally stamped "Specimen" or they have small holes spelling the word specimen. Most of the time they don't have a serial number, or they have a serial number of 00000. This is an exciting sector of the hobby that grown in popularity over the past several years.
