This is the older non-image stabilization lens classified as used but is in pristine condition. There are no marks or scratches on the lens, hood, or the box. When you take it out of the packaging it appears new. There are tiny specs of usage in the area where the lens mounts to the tripod. I took plenty of photos so look as close as you can.
The Canon manufacturing code is UM0652 which the former owner related it was bought in early 1999. M making the code manufactured in 1998.
This does not have image stabilization but in my opinion you do not need it. You will be using this lens on a tripod or at the very least a monopod. You will not find a Canon 500mm in this condition at a better price.

A light weight and compact super telephoto lens suitable for hand-held shooting. This is a popular super telephoto lens among sports photographers. By restricting the maximum aperture to f/4.5, a motor-driven 500mm lens weighing only 3kg is realized. High picture quality from maximum aperture is realized by an optical system incorporating artificial crystal fluorite and UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) glass lens elements(2nd & 4th), which eliminate chromatic aberrations. High-speed and silent AF with full-time manual focusing, focus-preset mechanism and power manual focusing sensitivity control, are ensured by a ring USM(Ultrasonic Motor) and inner focusing system. Extenders EF1.4X and EF2X are compatible with this lens with manual focusing.
