I want to sell my D200 that I bought soon after the release date. It has the original battery. It was dead, so I charged it overnight, put it in the camera, and the camera said it had 0 years age. Within a minute the camera said it was nearly empty. I repeated this, with the same outcome. Anyone had this issue and/or know what is going on?

My guess is that the battery keeps track of the number of effective charge/discharge cycles, and uses that to determine the age. However, the battery is so old that it cannot hold a charge, and in effect it is useless. Is my assumption about battery age correct?

The alternative of course is a fault with the camera causing a discharge of the battery, but that surely would lead to rapid heating due to a high current flow.

You won't know until you insert a different battery
A new battery costs money.
