Hi guys,

I could really use some help here .I have this Italian 1867 10 centesimi coin ,which I believe is struck with what I identify as two 7s (see image please)
Any idea what that could be ?

I am afraid that is too little to go on. It could be just someone trying out his new 7 punch or it could be a large number of other things.

Can't tell you much more. The right 7 was struck with too much force. Lack of experience, maybe?
