The SS lined ones are much shinier.

tin is never as smooth as nickel or SS
look near the handles on the outside: there might be a stamp on who made them probably in France.
sorry missed that its a pic and not something you can actually see. maybe the owner will tell you?

Many varieties of 'stainless' are not magnetic. For example, the lining steel used in Falk copper cookware is not magnetic.
Stainless steel is magnetic, nickel and tin are not.... just a thought...
Yes. Google is probably your friend there. For example. http://www.retinning.com/
I came across a set of tin lined copper cookware at a jumble sale last weekend. I did not buy because it looked as if the tin had worn down to the copper in a few places. Can you still find shops that will re-tin the cookware for you?
Hard to tell from the picture ['though they look tinned to me]. They may also be aluminum with a thin copper outer layer; I've seen 'faux copper' cookware made that way, too.
Title says it all, really. I'm looking at a set of pots on my local CL and wondering if they are tin-lined or SS. Attached is a picture of them.

There are a few places that do retinning:
East Coast Retinning
Metal Man Restoration
Rocky Mountain Retinning
and so on.
