We finally found the ideal bag to haul loads of dirty rocks or fossils while rockhounding.
These sacks are former money sacks used by banks, mints, and coin/precious metal collectors. They are designed to carry literally thousands of coins, so they are made of durable cloth canvas with heavy duty stitching. Some may have drawstrings as well.
Can you believe we rescued these from a bank that was just going to toss them out.
Note: These are used so most are a bit dirty, which doesn't matter much for hauling rocks. Easy enough to wash. Some also have various bank logos and/or handwritten notes about the currency they once carried, which we think makes them even better. Yours may not look exactly like the ones pictured.
