Most copper cookware that was made before ~1990 has a lining of tin on the cooking surface. Tin is a relatively soft metal and after years of cooking, washing, cooking and washing, this lining wears away and exposes the copper beneath. Retinning is the process of periodically re-lining this tin layer.
A general rule of thumb - when an area the size of a quarter is showing thru the tin, it is time for a retinning.
