Remington makes a 5 1/2 primer but it is not as large as what you seem to need.  I have never seen a Winchester 5 1/2.  I see your box in Giles’ book.  Dan Shuey’s Vol 1 on pages 223 and 224 shows a 32 WS with a large primer and a small primer.  The 5 1/2 came out in 1903 and was replaced in 1927 by the 24.

Not sure W 24’s will be easy to find either?
