Would it be plausable that in 1888 all new production of this round was flat nosed?

Also would it be plausable that 20 round boxes were for the Gew 71/84 and 10 round boxes were for the Gew 71?

All new production probably would be for flat nosed since the 71/84 was in service: It's possible that this box got mixed up down the line somewhere- how long has it been in collector hands? They probably would have changed the designation on the box given the possibility of a disaster if one put 71 rounds into a 71/84.
