How long do laser stuff stay good if no use ever ?

I bought a bunch of modules because people said they were good but really they all suck. Instead of flushing them down the toilet with my meds, I thought I’d put them away in storage so my son can rip someone off on eBay with them in 20 years or so. Will they stay “good” for that long if I vacuum pack them and hide them in my attic with my vintage playboys ?

*I used broken English for the title because it’s easier for Google translate

In theory nothing should happen, but in life sh!t happens and stuff randomly breaks sometimes. Maybe you accidentally expose the die to light and somehow damage the sensitive crystal over time, or maybe you accidentally pass a magnet near it and break something (I actually did that once), or maybe oil from your hands tarnishes the finish (depending on the metal use) over the course of a few years.

I digress, you're probably 99.9% fine storing it long term
