There are openings at either end into which a book can be slipped. On the outside of the cover is a gusseted pocket which is 7 1/2 inches long by 6 1/4 inches wide with velcro type closure. A textile carry handle is attached. In its zippered position it measures 9 inches long by 6 1/2 inches wide by 1 1/4 inches deep.

The applicable subheading for the book cover will be 6307.90.9989, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other made up articles...Other. The rate of duty will be 7 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
