What is this coming out of my wall?

Hi all - I just purchased a home. I noticed this wire sticking out of the wall and was trying to figure out what it is. Any ideas?Name:  wire.jpg

Welcome to the forums.

It looks like very old 300ohm TV antenna twinlead.
Are the two wires very thin and just a few strands ?
