The submitted sample is identified as item #15008. This product is made of man-made fiber fabric. It has a baseball type peak and the body of the hat resembles a Santa Claus hat with a cone-shaped portion and a white pompom at the end. This hat has a plastic strip in the back for adjustments to various sizes. The peak of the hat is green and the cone-shaped portion is red. The words “I Believe In Santa Claus” are embroidered across the front with holly leaves and berries.

The applicable subheading for the baseball type Santa hat will be 9505.10.2500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles for Christmas festivities and pats and accessories thereof: Christmas ornaments: other, other. The rate of duty will be 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. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Alice Masterson at 212-637-7090.
