These cases are rather durable and are intended for daily use. Each case accommodates a standard RX pad with either top or side loading entry. Your letter states that these items will be imported without the paper.

The applicable subheading for the products will be 4205.00.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of leather or of composition leather. The rate of duty will Free.
