Two rare Boleslaus III cross / chapel deniers of the Cach 189 and Cach 200 types have been found recently by treasure hunters using metal detectors. The issue of the cross / chapel denier types, to which both described coins belong, is dated to the period of the first reign of Boleslaus III, i.e., to the years 999–1002. For a more precise determination of the period during which the deniers of the cross / chapel type were struck, it is crucial to note that these were not present in any Czech or foreign hoards buried at the end of the 990s. Considering this, the oldest find containing the cross / chapel type deniers is probably the hoard from Kalisz X, Central Poland, which was buried after the year 999. The specimen found in Hlušice (Kolín District) differs from all previously known specimens of the cross / chapel denier of the Cach 189 type. Both dies of the Cach 200 type, found in the vicinity of Chot'ovice, correspond with the deniers of the same type from the Chrášťany hoard, found in 1896.
