Originally, these used Mica. Later on, a ribbed, blackened, Aluminum diaphragm was used. I don't think Lyric reproducers used Copper.

If this were my machine, I would use the Mica as originally issued. You could use copper, but it is not correct. Ron Siko sell the Mica and possibly the pleated Aluminum Diaphragms.
