The scarecrow has a brown hat, a blue shirt and brown patched trousers. He has human facial features and hands.

The merchandise will be cleared through the port of Chicago.

Your sample is being returned under separate cover.

The applicable subheading for the witch will be 9505.90.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "Festive, carnival or other entertainment articles, ....Other: Other". The rate of duty will be free.
