In your letter dated December 18, 2001 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

24 markers packed in a plastic packer
24 crayons packed in a box

The sample will be returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the “Trolley Case” will be 4202.12.2050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for cases with outer surface of plastics or of textile materials, other than structured, rigid on all sides. The rate of duty will be 20% ad valorem for 2002.
