It's probably an altcoin wallet, do you remember using them in 2013?

Don't search by "Address"... That is Bitcoin Core interpreting the hex value stored in the wallet as a Bitcoin address which will be different to the address shown on another network. Instead, search by TransactionID as that doesn't change across the networks.

In Bitcoin Core, goto the "Transactions" tab, right click one of the transactions and select "Copy Transaction ID". Then copy/paste that into block explorers for the most common altcoins (ie. Litecoin, Dogecoin etc)

Seems to work "OK".... I just tried it using an old Dogecoin wallet.dat using the "bash" shell in Windows 10 Dev mode...

Code:
strings wallet.dat | grep purpose
and
Code:
strings wallet.dat | grep name

Both returned a list of addresses contained in the wallet.dat ("name" seemed to list more results)... All the addresses were shown in the "correct" format for the wallet type... ie. they all start with a "D"... so I can tell they are "Dogecoin".

Give it a try and see what addresses you can see listed and see what the first letter of the address is... that should help identify which altcoin the wallet belongs to.
