I checked a Teletype Model 43. The major ICs are :

430671		(40-pin, main PCB)

430641		(40-pin, main PCB)

342238		(28-pin, keyboard PCB)

342280		(28-pin, keyboard PCB)

342280		(28-pin, keyboard PCB, 2 units)

Don't seem to match those in your photos.
The unit checked has date stamps from 1982 on other components.
