Default Unopened Bundesbank bags of pre-Euro coins

Anyone know where I could pick up a few of the 10kg or larger bags that have
truly never been opened and searched? I see lots of them on eBay but they
are very rarely sealed bags. Most have been opened and, I'm sure, at least
scanned for any better coins. I've bought some the opened ones and the
"sewn" ones and really found nothing unusual in them. I'd like to try some
that have been untouched since Bundesbank sealed them. I have Googled it and
searched European websites to no avail but someone is selling them because
eBay sellers tell me that they are expecting new shipments.

Thanks

They are out of stock now, but you can buy them here if you are
willing to pay the price:

Though being unsearched may or may not be a good thing. You could end
up with far more duplicates that way. And I'm skeptical that the banks
don't quickly go through them for gold and silver. It might even be
possible to mechanically search for precious metals?

Anyway, I bought a 5 pound mix from the same seller on eBay for $40.
Not the best price for a mix, but it was a pretty good mix even though
the coins were rather dirty and lower grades.

Why would any European banks have bags of (pre-Euro) foreign coins to
dispose of? Why would they have taken them in in the first place, if
it was "too much trouble" to redeem them in the issuing country?

Although I doubt many of the coins come from transactions at teller
windows, maybe customers put them in ATM deposit envelopes? Or they
get dumped into coin counting machines the banks have?

I am surprised at how many coins they have though.
