It appears to be a new part someone mounted and then put back in the box (after determining it wasn't their issue). Outside of the mounting marks it does have some light corrosion as shown. Thank you for reading this and for your understanding. NOS, or new old stock does not mean the part is mint or even perfect!
We do not own or sell anything that is perfect. Ford Motor Company has always been in the business of building mass produced vehicles and parts, NOT show cars.
When we describe something as being NOS that means it is new and has never been installed on a car. Any out of the normal flaws are mentioned and most times even pictured in the description so there should be no surprises, check our feedback. We try our best to accurately describe the parts we sell but we can and do make mistakes just like everyone else.
