Abstract: In the records of Wągrowiec, the town in Wielkopolska, kept in the National Archive in Poznań, there are a number of seventeenth and eighteenth – century notes, concerning hiding, withdrawing and searching for coin deposits. These mentions, most often included in testaments and lawsuit acts, were usually related to the times of political disturbances (Swedish Deluge, Great Northern War). The lawsuit under consideration dates back to 1764 and regards the discovery of a treasure in the village of Rakowo, providing an interesting example of the redeposition and change of the owner of hidden possession – issues that are usually difficult to notice in the analyses of hoards. The examples demonstrate the significance of hitherto underestimated municipal documents for the studies on the circulation and hoarding of money in the modern times.
