Identifying copper pan lining

chezbon | Jan 28, 201501:55 AM

I have copper pans. I live in France and they were all purchased here second hand. I have read many threads here and elsewhere about identifying types of pans, rivets, etc. I think (hope) I have a simple question: If the rivets are steel, is the pan stainless steel lined? If they are copper, is it tin lined? I have copper riveted pans that are old, and the rivets inside are flat and tinned over. I have newer pans with steel rivets, and they are raised on the inside; some of the pans have are lined with what looks like tin from the discoloration; others are not discolored and I think they are stainless. I would like to be able to know by testing at the rivets with a magnet whether the lining is SS or tin. A related question is: does anyone know when the bimetal pans began being made? Thanks to all.....
