Was anything ever connected to the GPIO, not just right now, but at any point in the Pi's life?
Who are you asking that question of?
Sorry, didn't specify.
I was asking dannyk6

I think this answers your question.

Nothing plugged into the GPIO. No chance of shorting the GPIO pins as the Pi's are placed in a plastic case before ever powering them up.

If you're asking me, no, nothing ever was connected to GPIO. By the time the Pi is powered up for the first time, it's installed in a plastic case, so there's zero chance any metal may have come in contact with the GPIO pins when the Pi is powered on.
