Not necessarily so as one can find different definitions of NOS.

Here's one that I would subscribe to that says "Never sold on the open market" (retail).

What Qualifies as New Old Stock?

Lots of things can qualify as new old stock, but what the term boils down to is stock produced many years ago that was never sold on the open market. It could have been stored in a retail shop or country store long out of business, warehoused in a factory boarded up decades ago, or housed in the garage of a distributor who's been retired since the 1960s.

Exactly.  Pretty frickin self explanatory to any normal person.

My seller told me that this was her grandmother's and that it was barely used, then stored in her mother's attic to keep it away from children. (Open cage, dangerous blades, etc.) So it WAS used, but not much and never out to the public. It is in outstanding condition, 100% factory Japaning, all there, none missing, polished blades, even the factory felt is perfect. I pulled the rear off the motor when I got it and it is beautiful and new-looking internally. Wicks were fairly new looking, oil still present, though I cleaned the oilers and added new oil, keeping the wicks. I checked on the inside of the rear bearing carrier; it is brass/bronze, so I am assuming the non-magnetic front is also brass.

Style# 162634, no letter, just that number.
