RE: The tariff classification of "The Visitor: A Tribute to the Classic Flying Saucer", made in China.

Dear Mr. Mckenna:

In a letter dated September 23, 1997 you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client L.J. Liff & Associates.

A sample of "The Visitor: A tribute to the Classic Flying Saucer", was provided with your letter. The "Visitor" is a small plastic representation of a flying saucer designed to be suspended over a plastic base representing the surface of the moon. The saucer, attached to a plastic filament with a metal tip, is suspended over the base. Attached to the underside of the saucer is a magnet which is set opposite to six electromagnets inside the base. The opposing magnets cause the saucer to move around the base. Lights on the saucer are powered by a 1.5 volt battery which is included. The base glows in the dark and the electromagnets inside are powered with a 9 volt battery, not included.

The applicable subheading for "The Visitor: A tribute to the Classic Flying Saucer", will be 9503.90.0045, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Other toys: Other, Other toys and models. The rate of duty is free.

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

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.
