I notice some old radios and amplifiers has a socket that has 5 pins , that goes like this : |- -| -
and the plug goes like the attachment.

What is this socket / plug called? How do I tell whether "|" or "-" is hot or ground side ?

I've repaired/owned hundreds of radios, amps, receivers over the years...never saw that type plug or jack.

On German car radios. I've seen 2-pin connectors that were the same style and we called them DIN connectors.

It's the IEC "Reihenstecker" (row or line plug). Only Philips used it.

This is a (European) PHILIPS (stereo) audio plug, never a standard, only used on Philips-made radios and audio sets produced during the 60ies/early 70ies. AFAIK these were only made and used by Philips (and affiliated brands like Novak, SBR,ACEC, Radiola, etc...) and are very hard to get now, even here in Europe. I never heard about a specific designator for these plugs. Mostly used on stereo sets. Later they produced Philips 5-pin to the more common (circular) DIN adaptors but they weren't easy to find either.
