Dear Mr. VerPault:

It will be imported boxed for retail sale.

The applicable subheading for the “B/O Pinball Game” will be 9504.90.4000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Articles for arcade, table, table or parlor games, including pinball machines, bagatelle, billiards and special tables for casino games: Other: Game machines, other than those operated by coins, banknotes (paper currency) discs or similar articles; parts and accessories thereof. 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).
