                Just heard that from my TA. The class was going to buy me this a year ago but found as well it couldn't be shipped (got a nice type related sweatshirt instead—but my wife confiscated it—she looks much better in it anyway).

                Certainly can understand the rationale for that, customs clearance and all, though my understanding is that metal type specifically cannot be taxed as import in the USA, constitutional freedom of speech and all, whatever that actually means. Sort of like what exactly does the right to bear arms against an unpopular government mean? Historically; not at all, under any circumstance.

                  In the very early days of the United States republic,
                  Congress enacted a 25% duty on imports of metal
                  type, but no duty at all on matrices. This was to
                  encourage a domestic type founding industry. (See
                  "Irregularities in the Customs Shed" by Paul Duensing,
                  1984, on Miller & Richard of Scotland's complaints
                  in 1876 that they were being overcharged on the
                  25% duty.)

                  As far as I know this law still stands. My personal
                  experience has been that if the type comes in a
                  heavy enough box that it must be delivered by common
                  carrier, you will have to go through a customs broker
                  and pay the duty. If it's small enough to come via the
                  post office or UPS, then it just shows up at your
                  shop with no furthur ado. I don't know why the difference.

                    Makes sense. I recall one of the early, significant American type foundries did make an official complaint to the government about a duty on bismuth (I have a copy somewhere), wherein they cited restrictions as detrimental to purpose and commerce. Somewhat interesting to me as I assumed that antimony had replaced bismuth as an essential in type casting by the early 16th century.

                      As a point of reference: I've not paid duty on type imported from Europe.

                      The four sizes of Gladiola I recently purchased from Stempel showed up via DHL in two heavy chipboard boxes. Two sizes of Juliet Script arrived 12 years ago via post in a small, heavy wooden crate packed with excelsior.

                      The five fonts sent stateside of a custom casting of 10 fonts of 36pt Columna from Bauer needed to be picked up in two large boxes from customs at Logan Airport and after signing my name to the various forms, I walked out with duty free type then as well. The balance of the five fonts were drop-shipped from Barcelona to the five subscribers who help facilitate the casting by placing a deposit. I don't know if any of them were charged a duty, though I suspect not.
