    I believe the Porta-B as well.

    Were any Hammonds actually built with 9-pin connectors, or were they added as kits for 9-pin Leslies?

    The early Hammonds were built with a 6-pin jack. Later models began using 5-pin jacks. This difference occurred when consoles had B+ power built in. The 6th pin was no longer needed.
    9-pin connectors were added when 9-pin Leslies became popular. The 11-pin eventually became the standard still in use. No mains power goes through this connector and because of safety concerns and requirements the previous versions were discontinued.

    I suspect more 5 and 6-pin models were built in total since those version Hammonds were built for 40 years. There is only 10 to 15 years of use with the higher pin count versions.
