powershell detect overwritten files

Is there a way to find files that have been replaced by older files?  For example , I am using a simple gci ( get-childitem) to find all files with certain extensions  where last modified date is greater than yesterday's date. How would I find any new files that may have gotten overwritten by older files . Ie , someone that accidentally overwrites a config file with an older file of the same name.  is that possible in powershell using get-childitem or other ?
