I just found some long lost purple triple datura seeds in a small sealed plastic seed envelope.

What are the chances one of them is viable and how might I proceed in hopes of getting a sprout?

I've had 10 year old datura seeds sprout. Just takes awhile longer than fresh.

They are native in the desert in sandy areas so I am positive that they are just like most of the desert seeds that can sit dormant for many years, waiting for water or the right conditions. I got one to grow in a pot and one or two in my ground, this year so far, that someone gave me the seeds for about 3 years ago.
