If the box is sealed then the product should be unregistered, however if the box is open I would be careful.  If this is an open box, you could verify if the product was ever registered by calling Microsoft and giving them the license number, they would be able to tell you for sure. Other than that, there is no other way that I know of to determine if it was in fact registered or not.

Valicon is as correct here as he was in the previous link : the only way you can tell is to call  Microsoft or to know someone inside Microsoft who can call/check the system for you. You may not like this as an answer but it nevertheless is correct,
