Copper pot lining - tin, nickel or stainless?

Konuku | Sep 7, 202008:35 AM     188

I know people have asked about their pot's lining on this forum so I hope you can help. I am a copper pot novice. This is literally my first copper pot! I bought it from a flea market in France yesterday. The woman said it was tin-lined, but it might not have been hers and I honestly am not sure. The pot is fairly heavy - around 2.2 kilos and is 20 cm wide. I did the magnet test and nothing stuck to lining BUT did stick to the rivets and of course the handles which are cast iron. So probably not nickel. The inside looks like it is hammered on the sides. I tried to clean the inside with superfine powdery copper cleaner, but it still remains somewhat tarnished. Any thoughts?
