Silver Three Cent Pieces were also known as ‘Trimes’ and were minted from 1851 to 1873. They were the smallest United States silver coin.
Non-proof Silver Three Cent Pieces from 1863 to 1872 are rare as nearly the entire production was melted in 1873. 1873 was a scarce proof-only issue and the last year of the Silver Three Cent series with a mintage of just 600 coins.
