I thought this was a really good look at the affect of seed age on germination!

Left to right, a fresh seed (1 or 2 years), a 4 year old seed, and an 11 year old seed.

These were planted at the same time, (the 11 year old seed was actually presoaked ahead of the other two)... but even so its lagging way behind... this is why old seeds can be started a full week ahead of new seeds for approximately equal planting date! They can be very slow out of the gate.
