A trime was a 3c US silver or nickel based coin from the 1850-1870s originally minted to make it oonvenient for postal patrons to pay the new 3c postage rate introduced in 1851 in the US.

A few post offices used a cancellation based on the Trime.

I have collected these cancels for a number of years and now that I'm having major medical problems, I have the time to expand my knowledge/collection. I have search a number of publications for any articles about trime, but to no avail. I have gone through the America Stampless Cover Catalog and found a few notations there.

Does any one know of other references that they could point me to.

Here's what I currently have in my database. The "x" means I have a copy in my collection.

I'd start by checking the fancy cancel books (i.e., Skinner-Eno, Cole, et al) and see what you can find in those.

EagleEric:

Since this is a philatelic forum, I would think that you could guess I'm looking for the cancels. Information about the coins is readily available on a number of sites.

Information about the cancels is not available. And I have searched the complete listing of the US Classic Society on line.
