Could it be EPSG 2163?


Use a background to see if that's it.  You can use the open layer plugin. Be 
careful, that plugin will change the project CRS.  You can change it back or 
you can make sure "crs on the fly " is activated.  


If that is not it.  Right click on the layer and redefine the layer CRS, then 
zoom to extent.

What CRS in Qgis project properties should I select in order to work with an 
Arc/Info binary coverage?
