Dopera Originals

The Dopyera brothers Americanized their name to Dopera. During the 1960's, the Dopera Original 5-string banjo was offered by the company, and it is likely the picks were made during the same period. They are quite thick and well-formed from German silver and can occasionally be found in auctions, although not as often as the National brand. Some versions have been found without the Dopera name on the blade.
