I believe that your headstamp is FA4. FA = Frankford Arsenal - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 4 = 1944.

Thanks for the info guys. Pulled out the magnifying glass, you right it is a 4, eyes aren't what they used to be.

Nice, these are relatively hard to find in original packaging!

Those small boxes of rounds were packed with the grenades, as well as in small spam cans with several different types of rounds. Great collectible.
