You are really so appreciated.The Chicago Manual of Style agrees with soccergal -- or vice versa.
It also notes that "Noun abbreviations with only one (terminal) period usually form their plurals by the addition of s before the period."
Welcome to the forum.
Thank you!In British publication styles, once you add the final <s>, the full stop is omitted. (This arose out my dealings with Routledge in London.) Therefore, <ed.> is the abbreviation for 'editor', but <eds> is the abbreviation for 'editors'. In Copyright's examples, we would see vol., vols, yr, yrs. (No stop in 'yr' because the last letter of the abbreviation is also the last letter of the word - hence 'Mr', 'St' and so on.) Hence, in the original example, it would be TTSs.
