The submitted brass spyglass has a brown piece of stitched material wrapped around the bottom portion. The Mariner’s Spyglass magnifies objects up to 12 times. The item is 13 inches in length when fully extended and collapses to 5½ inches in length. You have indicated that the item is an authentic reproduction of an antique Mariner’s spyglass. The Mariner’s Spyglass has 4 telescoping segments and an eyepiece that adjusts for clear focus. The intended use of this item is as a spyglass to view things in the distance. The spyglass is imported and sold with a wooden holder.

The applicable subheading for the Mariner’s Spyglass will be 9005.80.4040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other instruments; optical telescopes; other. The rate of duty will be 8 percent ad valorem.
