Here you go.

An example of a pretty rare box of Winchester High Velocity .45-70s.

It didn't have the explicit warning that later boxes like the .32-20 I showed above had.

I have in my personal collection a .45-70 shell headstamped indicating that it is part of this line up. I can't remember the exact head stamp specifics right now, but it's definitely one of the cartridges adapted specifically for the 1886 Winchester and not for use in earlier guns like the Trapdoor.
