Ideal Electrotype

Charles L. Stiles published a set of 70 poultry electrotypes.
His flyer was titled "Ideal Poultry Cuts"

The artist sold the electrotypes to the poultry breeder so the local printer
could produce letterhead, envelopes, etc. with pictures of the breed.

The sales flyer has no date on it, though it was accompanied by 
correspondence dated March 20, 1923.
