When you have bought a vintage tin lined copper pan...

I recently bought a vintage copper pan, tin lined, a 24 cm sauté pan, really thick. The tin lining looks good to me, but I’m not an expert at all. How should I think? What to look for in the lining? If there is no exposed copper and no green verdigris it’s good to go, or? Is it that simple?

The lining is dark grey and have a VERY smooth feeling (of course there are a few typical tin lining bumps) - you can almost ”feel” the non stick properties.

I have searched the internet, but I can’t find a lead test kit here in Sweden. Claus, perhaps they sell it in Denmark?
