1/ Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 3323, dated Oct. 20, 1959, the higher of the 2 rates to which this footnote is attached was made applicable during any 12-month period beginning Nov. 1, 1959, and in each subsequent year, after a total aggregate quantity of 69 million single units of table spoons described under par. 339, and of table knives and table forks described under par. 355, had been entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption; until the total aggregate quantity of the designated units had been entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, during any 12-month period designated above, the lower rate of duty was applicable. /Bound.

Table 4.--Stainless-steel table flatware: Production and sales by U.S. manufacturers, U.S. imports for consumption, and apparent consumption, 1951-68, January-September 1968, and January-September 1969
1968 7--Jan.-Sept.: 1968 7/ 1969
1/ Partly estimated from sales data for a few manufacturers.
2/ Includes an estimate for a small amount of imports in the years 1953-58.
The high figure for imports in 1960 is attributable primarily to the entry in that year of most of the imports permissible within the quota in the first and second quota years. As a result, the figures for apparent consumption and the ratios of imports to apparent consumption and to production for 1960 and 1961 are of only qualified significance.
6/ Data for 1963 and 1964 are revised. Data do not include imports in sets of nonquota-type stainless-steel table flatware for the period Aug. 31, 1963 through December 31, 1967, because they were not reported separately under the TSUS. Such imports are known to be negligible. Data on U.S. production and sales exclude data for 4 manufactures who did not submit questionnaires.
8/ Available data are known to be inaccurate. It is estimated that imports in 1967 were at least as large as they were in 1966.

1/ U.S. producers' sales plus imports. Data on the quantity of exports, known to be small, are not separately reported in official statistics. All data except those on silver-plated and stainless-steel flatware contain estimates. For apparent consumption of stainless-steel table flatware, taking exports into account, see table 4.
2/ Data exceed those in table 4 by the amount of exports which were small in most years.
3/ Includes consumption of an estimated 1 million dozen pieces of flatware with handles of "other materials" not separately reported in official statistics.
4/ Not available.
5/ Excludes data for 4 manufacturers who did not submit questionnaires.
