Dear Mr. Mistler:

The merchandise is various parts for ball point pens. Each will be imported separately. The first part is the nib, consisting of the ball and cone. The second part is the plastic tube that will contain the ink. The last part is the nib adapter, which is the plastic connection between the nib and the ink tube.

The applicable subheading for the nib will be 9608.91.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for pen nibs and nib points. The rate of duty will be free.

The applicable subheading for the adapter and the tube will be 9608.99.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for ball point pens, parts ... of the foregoing articles, other, other, parts of articles provided for in subheadings 9608.10, 9608.31 and 9608.39 (other than balls for ball point pens). The rate of duty will be 0.9 cents each plus 6.1 percent ad valorem.
This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
