Does anyone know if this is a common variety, an overstrike, or an error? I'm not finding anything about this coin on the internet.

It's an 1866-M 10 Centesimi coin with what appears to be an overstrike of another 10 Centesimi 1867.

@jay1234, are you sure that this is an actual overstrike? The fact one set of features is incuse and backwards almost certainly means that this may be a so-called "vice job" where one coin is squished between others in a machinist's vice thus transferring over part of the design.

Spence, I have no idea. I have a feeling you may be right though. There is also a little damage on the obverse where it looks like it could have been held in a vise.

Ok yes--if you post a pic of the other side of this coin, it could help others weigh in with their opinions too.
