This is really interesting, please don't kill this thread so soon.

One way to check if the chip had ESD accident is to pull all inputs to Vdd, measure supply current. Then pull them all to GND and measure again. If in any case it draws more than fraction of microamp, it's most probably ESD fried and goes to certified WEEE recycler (you cannot use the word trashbin nowadays). With badly fried inputs the chip might still work but draw nice miliamps via inputs.
But if there's no supply current measurable in both cases it still doesn't mean it's all good. Like covid test cannot prove you're not infected.
