Bar iron is considered that which by a process of hammering or rolling is converted into a uniform shape in its entire length, and which must be cut in order to be utilised. Bars not of a uniform shape in the whole length can only be classed as bar iron when they are imported with indentations or projections at regular intervals, such as iron for the ribs of ships and for spokes. Ornamented bars are taxed as worked up iron; manufacturers' marks are not considered as ornaments.

† Scrap iron is that which is only fit for remelting. Springs of clocks, &c., which can be otherwise utilised for the manufacture of fret saws, will pay as iron wire. Old and broken rails which cannot be utilised as such may be admitted as scrap iron, even if they can be employed for buildings, &c. When doubts arise as to the nature of scrap iron, such iron may be admitted under this denomination if the importer causes it to be broken up under the supervision of the Administration. Old cannon, projectiles, armour plate, broken or defective, the destruction or remelting of which would not be practicable under the surveillance of the Administration, may pay as scrap on sufficient proof being furnished by the manager of the establishment where the said cannon, &c., have been remelted.
