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

Dear Mr. Riley:

In your letter dated September 13, 1990, on behalf of Allison Corporation, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style #57-1349 is a leather coin purse measuring approximately 4" x 2 1/4". It is unlined, and secured by a top textile zipper closure, with an affixed metal split key ring at the end of the zippered closure. The front of the purse has the name affixed "Members Only".

The applicable subheading for the leather coin purse, style #57- 1349, 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 rate of duty 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.
