RE: The tariff classification of a leather coin purse from India.

Dear Mr. Magee:

In your letter dated May 9, 1994, on behalf of Dollar Tree Stores, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling for a leather coin purse.

The sample submitted, no style number indicated, described as a "Change Purse/Key Holder", is a leather coin purse measuring approximately 4 1/2 inches by 2 3/4 inches. A zippered pocket is located on the rear exterior containing six metal fasteners for holding keys. The purse is secured by means of a top zippered closure.

The applicable subheading for the coin purse of leather will be 4202.31.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles of a kind normally carried in the pocket or in the handbag, with outer surface of leather, of composition leather or of patent leather, other. The duty rate will be 8 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.
