Dear Ms. Wood:

In your letter dated September 10, 1998, on behalf of your client Greco Frame and Supply Co., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The self stick picture hanger has a 1/2 inch fold at the bottom that has been stitched and holds a small metal circular eyelet. The eyelet is centered in the fold of woven fabric. The metal eyelet is the essential character of this product.

The sample is returned as you requested.
