Does any one know where I can get some? Just the bags, without coins.

at the Bundesbank?
I don't speak German, and if anyone knows where I can buy them online, that would be a great help.
Need help ordering one or two? Let me know!
P.S. They ship to Germany only
I know you probably tried it but just in case you didn't: There is this guy on ebay who sells the coins. Maybe you can write him and ask for the empty bags.
All I can see there are bags WITH coins.
He sells the coins in smaller quantities and he just might have some extra EMPTY bags.
By the way, the Deutsche Bundesbank uses the bags for coin transports but does not sell single bags. The Bundesbank branch offices do not have any (full or empty) for sale either ...
Let me clear something up.
You want Canvas Coin Bags, or you want Canvas Coin Bags with the Bundesbank name on them.
Canvas bags can be bought for $2-$3 a piece. Just google for the coin handling supplies (e.g. Brinks, Dunbar, etc...) and they will sell them in like boxes of 50.
I find the bags by asking goodwilled tellers if I can have 1 or 2. So far, I have not had to actually order a box.
Anybody have an idea where I can get these bags "with" the coins in large lots? (50 pounds plus)
Buying it on ebay might just mean going through multiple parties + the 15% ebay, paypal costs. I would apprecaite it if anyone could let me know.
The general bag size is 10 kilograms (22 avoirdupois pounds.)
Thanks Hontonai. Any idea where I can get that volume of coins?
I haven't seen any listed recently, but try searching "bundesbank" on eBay or other auction sites. There was a PCGS Forum member who used to buy them, but he passed on recently, so I don't have any particular source of information.
