The Kings Mills plant was closed in 1944. Today, some of the buildings still exist on the river just below the Kings Island property. The shot tower for making cannon balls in the 19th century still stands, and several of the buildings still have the "Peters Cartridge Company" name on the side. I live about an hour south of the site and have visited it several times. Neat piece of history.
The repack stamp was added to the boxes when they were removed from the original wooden shipping boxes and repacked in spam cans for shipment overseas or long term storage. I have several boxes of the carbine ammo, some stamped and some not, as well as an original wooden shipping box. Kings Mills carbine ammo was made from 1942-1944, total production around 790 million rounds. It is desirable to ammo collectors, especially if the box is in good shape, as your is. Nice example.
