It depends, but my experience so far is that my disks from 1985 to 1992 (very
different qualities and types) could be read nearly without problems in
2012. Just disks which have already problems in these old days rendered
unreadable in some cases. I'm not sure, but it may help to read the disks
with the drive they were written in the past.

So I would encourage you to give them a try.
