Sugar I have posted that I will look, The original coin is still after 270 AD in portraiture style and probably not far from the mid 4th century.

OK well firstly the best method to id Roman coins from the 4th century is by the reverse, unfortunately we don't have that luxury. So we are left with just part of the bust which, though I'cant be sure by any means, does have the softness of style from the reigns of either Constans or Constantius II. The over strike is a mystery, as the second impression has mixed with some of the original to give a completely unique look.
