Always a difficult one simply on the basis of a photograph Carl...but there does appear to be a glow? From the front it looks ok...though the bullion looks relatively bright. Old bullion tends to dull with age....

Carl,

As Ian says ID can be difficult with a photo.  However, with the black back and the reverse stitching I think it looks like a Pakistani repop.  I am far from an expert though, just my opinion.
