Default how long can a car battery be left dead before its junk?

im looking at a used car and the battery was dead. dont know how long its been dead, i just know how long the cars been sitting. I have assumptions but have never heard anything about it... any ideas? maybe i can get them to get me a new one if i have an idea what im talking about.

if its completly dead is usually junk.. if i rember correcttly anything lower than 11.8v is considered drained. check the voltage on it if its like completly 0 its probly gone or if its a everstart
