I'd call it a Molex but that doesn't get you much further forward I'm afraid.

My first thought was also Molex, but I thinks there's room for doubt. I think all the Molex I've seen have round pin-type connectors. Judging by other stuff in the pic, it dates back some time; maybe early Molex had that type if pin.

As well as Molex, AMP also made similarly styled connectors.

From what I recall both AMP and Molex are now part of the TE connectivity family.

There are a load of variations on those plugs/sockets. Look closely and you will see that some have square corners , some rounded, some with molded bits in one or more corners to prevent the wrong plug entering the wrong socket. There are also versions with internal/external locking pieces that again prevent fitting the wrong plug. I presume this is from a Jukebox as they were commonly used for interconnects in those.

You buy the connectors separately from the shell. They can be removed by carefully easing the retaining tang.
