Is there a way to determine the lining of copper pans?

Hi all,

I just scored a set of 4 copper pans at Goodwill - two skillets or fry pan: medium (~8.5") and large (~12.5"), a sauté pan with its lid (~11.5", maybe 4-5qt?) and a decently sized sauce pot with its lid (guessing ~3.5qt). They were all fairly patinaed so I know that they aren't lacquered and after one cleaning, will need at least another or two.

I'm trying to figure out whether the lining is tin or ss?

The copper on all the pieces are stamped "Made in France" and are about 3mm (maybe 3.2mm) thick (the lids are thiner, but still substantial). From what I can tell, the handles are cast iron, long and shaped like Mauveil's M'héritage; the teardrop opening at the end is similar. See the images below... Now that I'm looking at Mauveil's site, these might be M'héritage, which are ss lined. Does anyone one know how to tell for sure?
