In your letter dated January 2, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sculptures to be imported, lots #182 and #183, are Khmer, Bayon Style, Sandstone Head of a Guardian from the 13th century.

The applicable subheading for the sculptures will be 9706.00.0060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for antiques of an age exceeding one hundred years, 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 Lawrence Mushinske at 212-637-7061.
