For my personal knowledge and understanding, what detailed histories are
these that you refer to that say there was never a single KA11 11/10 sold,
not one installed? Most of what I have read about this time has been
anecdotal, not old-fashioned sales figures or marketing reports. I have
checked all of the sources that I have for more details, not much found to
confirm or refute this. I have the 1969 Keydata industry guide, but I'd
need the 1970 version that would be the ideal source if anyone has it, for
