The Chest in the troll cave

Hey there, just putting my little theroy out there, but i was thinking as i watched the hobbit for a third time, that the chest full of gold, which Bilbo(old), talks about in his conversation with frodo, at the start of the movie, is the same chest as the one in the troll cave. The chest which some of the dwarfs find stashed to the brim with gold, which they bury for "safe keeping, as a long-term deposit". Bilbo claims this the only gold he got from the adventure with the dwarfs and Gandalf. I may be wrong, as this is just a myth, but maybe the dwarfs gave it to him as his share after defeating Smaug.
