Dear Ms. Marcoux:

In your letter dated April 7, 2004, you requested a classification ruling.

The feeder is designed in the shape of a three-dimensional raccoon and measures approximately 11-1/2” long by 6” wide. The tail is hallowed and serves as the bird feeder. The feeder holds approximately ½ cup of seeds. The “Raccoon Bird Feeder” is designed to hang on a tree, or on the side of a house, shed or garage.

The applicable subheading for the “Raccoon Bird Feeder” will be 3924.90.5500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides forother household articlesof plastics: Other: Other. The rate of duty will be 3.4 percent ad valorem.
