The sample you provided is identified as the Free Kiss Coupon Tin (item number 399300). You indicated in your letter that it is a tin plated steel container holding a coupon made of paper. The container measures approximately 1 inch in height and 3½ inches in diameter. The lid has a picture of red lips and the words “Free Kiss” and “Contains One Free Kiss Coupon”.

The sample is returned as you requested.

The rate of duty will be free.
