often miss-represents itself as fitted used a few miles, taken off and still looks like it did, with maybe some 'storage' marks on it now.
Though NOS could actually have storage marks on it but should be mentioned.

New Old Stock is a funny term (imho - in my honest opinion) as while it tends to mean in this forum New and Unused stuff no longer made by the manufacturer. It might be from a person and not a shop or warehouse. So not really 'stock'

NIB would mean in it's box (New In Box), not NOS as many things didn't come in boxes.

BITD (Back In The Day) IIRC (If I Remember Correctly) the term NOS (New Old Stock) hadn't been coined.

NOS is not an acronym, an acronym is a word made up from the first letters of other words.

For example SHAPE is a word and the name (acronym) for Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe.

All the other answers viz NoS are correct.

Rk - abbreviation for Roadking!
