I'm guessing there weren't a ton made, but i'm still curious and am trying to learn as much about the first generation of computer keyboards as I can.

There was a specific model called the "I/O Selectric 731" that was produces with all the electronics and hardware to interface for both input and output, hence the I/O tag. There are few pics here: https://www.vaxbarn.com/index.php/other ... 62-ibm-731. Some of this was used in the later Selectrics that could print from memory ( Composer, Mag Card, etc)
