Older style double pane window with an aluminum box spacer. Likely clear glass with no low e or argon... Definitely room to upgrade in those areas ( add a couple points to r value) , but even more importantly in air infiltration. ... Ironically, most folks' biggest complaint with old windows is that they air drafty, but then they completely overlook air infiltration ratings and focus on glass when shopping for new windows.
