Today, Peters Cartridge and King Powder draw considerable interest from serious collectors - boxes, calendars, powder kegs, and other items left behind by the two companies regularly fetch hundreds and even thousands of dollars at auction. Few people know the fascinating story behind these now-departed industrial powerhouses and why their products are so valuable today. This new volume will be a priceless addition for collectors and historians alike, tracing the evolution of Peters and King from frontier powder mills to sophisticated munitions makers and providing current values for collectible advertising and packaging items. A color section displays and prices the most popular collectibles such as powder kegs, tins, cartridge boxes, and calendars. Discover how they helped shape the current arms industry and shooting sports, and successfully created a loyal following that continues today.
