A Friend who owns a vac store has quite an inventory of older paper bags that are discontinued,as im sure all of the machines they fit.
He bought the vac store 15 yrs ago from an older gentleman that retired, who had owned it since the 1950s, so most all of thse are from that old stock.
While i was there the other day, i thought id jot down what he has, incase anyone may need them.
If you are interested, let me know, and ill steer you his direction, or will be glad to get them for you, and send them at your cost.

Here is the list,,again, these are all paper bags, VERY OLD STOCK,,the plastic they are in is VERY dusty, but all the bags are in tact, as far as i can tell anyway. Most all are DVC or some off brand, non original. Of course there are no guarantees on effectivness,,or filtration quality,as some of these are at least 45 -50 yrs old, But they are all still sealed in the original plastic wrapper and have not been opened.

Kleen-Maid,(says on the package they "Fit Most Uprights")

Panisonic Canister fits MC-E9 and MC-8100

Kenmore,Sears Upright/Cannister (im assuming these are for the Kenmore Duo Clean, but it just says Upright/Canister on the package, no picture)says Fits models 3168,3250,3890,3905,3968,3990,3995,6590,6595,7495

Paper liners for Electrolux Model 30 & 12 (?? not sure what that is, assuming a very old Lux, like a model XXX?)

Shetland/Lewyt (dosent give what model these fit, but the bags have some kind of cardbard collar)

Sunbeam Uprights (no model #s given) These are original from the factory, i think,has the Sunbeam Logo on the front of package,,would also maybe fit a Kenmore of the same vintage?Not sure.
Pic on the front is of a Sunbeam Upright with a regular soft bag in the back,,not hard case.

Bissell Sweepmaster 3000 Series

Whirlpool Upright CV55,CVR1000,CVR2000

GE/Premier Swiveltop Canisters (these are newer, not old stock)

Fairfax Canisters

Douglas 8000-8001

model 12

The model 12 was the model before a 30, I believe 1930 -1937.

Thank you Kenkart,,i thought the models 12 & 30 must be pretty old! This guy does have some NOS belts and filters for various machines also,,i didnt look at them too closely, but the packages are caked with dust, so, im sure they have been there a LONG time.
