Did I overpay for this copper set?

TheCarrieWatson | Jan 7, 2013 02:57 PM

Got a 5-piece set of unstamped, very Mauviel-like, 2mm pans which just arrived today. They're in stunning condition overall. I can't quite tell but the lining seems like tin (that was my assumption when I bid on it) and it is pristine. However, the auction states that these are 3mm pans, and they're clearly 2mm. I asked the seller during the auction, too, and she "verified" that they were 3mm. So I would think getting a set like this in 3mm tin-lined copper for 255.00 would be in the too-good-to-be-true category and am not horribly surprised. I have 3 days to effect a return and really don't want to go that route unless I really did overpay for 2mm pans. Does anyone have any input? What would you do? Like I said, they're gorgeous, but just a bit thinner that I'd wanted. Also wondering if that is a steel, not tin, lining.
Sure would appreciate any opinions you all might have!
