Can anyone tell me what they understand to be the difference between a lens described as 'Open Box' and one described as 'Used' ??

I think open box means it has always remained in the shop and handled/used as a demo.

To be 'on the safe side' i've always assumed rightly or wrongly that an item described as 'open box' might be a customer return under the 14 day cooling off/trial period
that some retailers seem to offer...usually these still come with full warranty so i'm assuming they have been tested to ensure they work as they would from new.
