Type of toilet closet flange for 3" copper drain?

Hi All,
I'm looking for a little help with installing a toilet and flange.

I have 3" copper drain for the toilet and the previous flange is gone when I got here. (I have nothing to refer to for replacement)
It doesn't look like the previous flange was soldered to the drain pipe and I suspect that a closet flange of another type was used.

What are the flange options compatible with a 3" copper drain ?

Thank you very much for your suggestions.

Home Depot has PVC replacement flanges. Just talk to someone in the plumbing dept.

If the pipe is intact you use a brass flange and solder it...

Any copper drains I've ever seen where leaking.
You could see a straight line right down the bottom where it corroded.
Replace it with PVC.

I have to agree with Joe on this one. PVC will not corrode.
