Value: $511.2 million
Pct. of total seizures: : 40%

Handbags and wallets were by far the most counterfeited item in terms of MSRP, with the total value of the seizures up 142.2% compared to 2011. The CBP credits a portion of the large growth in seizures to “successful interagency-coordinated enforcement operations,” including Operation Market Day, which was primarily a sting operation coordinated in conjunction with U.S. Immigration and Customs. Of the approximately $511 million worth of handbags and wallets seized in 2012, more than $446 million worth originated in China.
