Default What to look for when buying a used transmission?

So I'm trying to find a 4L60e for my Camaro and im not entirely sure what to look for. Obviously I have to find one fbody specific but im not sure how they vary thru the years. I know it was just the 4L60 in 93 but after that I'm unsure.
And how can I tell if Im buying a good transmission?

Beyond looking at/smelling the fluid it's a crap shoot

95+ is different, pulse width modulated converter clutch, 13pin trans harness vs 12 pin non pwm 4l60e

Yeah I found that out last night when doing some research. I always knew there was something different between the two.

There's a junkyard that has one for 500 but it has 153k on it

Yeah, I'm gonna fix the gay shit and sell it. Whatever cash I get I'll put it aside for another Fbody. Not before I make a few passes
