As I told Gerben before when I got mine, US Customs isn't like Europe Customs.

I've never once had duty accessed on an item that was shipped via the Postal Service (i.e delivered here by USPS) even when they are clearly listed as "commercial" on the customs declaration. Couriers like UPS/DHL are totally different.

I'm not sure what the theoretical customs duties are for the US. I couldn't find any mention of them online. Anyone know for reference?

Mine was sent "letter" and arrived fine without it being confiscated I'd imagine if you owed duty you'd be summoned to the Post Office to pay it. It's not like your shipping child pornography.
