I think its going a bit off kilter here, the points I was originaly making were nos as in new (its state) and its use in advertising ones goods. irrelevant to some but very relevant to others, especially those looking to shall we say "enhance" a value.

Some interesting replies.

My LBS has containers of parts from the 90s, A lot of it either spent time on display shelves back in the day, or was stored in true hoarder fashion. No point in sourcing it for anyone looking for anything he might still have as I guess it's used tat now that may have a shop rat's fingerprints on it, and not even worth the cost of postage. :roll:

Don't sweat it. The boxes are creased/bent and they had been opened and touched. Worthless tat.

How can it be new old stock? Surely an oxymoron? Bit like the arbitrary 1997 thing on here. When does new become NOS? What if its not sold. Ever.

Purely from a philosophical pov. Are pristine unused antiques NOS?

If stock should sell but no one is around, does it make a sound?

If a mime artist falls over in a forest and there's nobody there, does it make a sound?
