It's probably IEC C19/20, to narrow it down a bit, does this look right?:
However, there is/was another range of 120V/240V connectors for things like
power tools, same general size as an ordinary plug but with different
orientations of the three pins for different currents, and one of those
orientations may match what you have. I'm not finding a reference online.
Electrical wholesale stores typically have them and I think I've seen some of
the variations at Home Depot.
