No back plate numbers on the bottom two.

Numbersman  is dead on. Top is legit.  Bottom two are not legit.  In my opinion of course.

Not a specialist but the bottom 2 would be super heavy ink offsets that would have made me look closer. I would have not noticed what @jhodgson mentioned.

A close examination of the ink should reveal if it is raised as a result of the printing process or if its in the paper from an inkjet printer.  However, the reverse is printed first, so the middle note came from a messed up sheet on the final print.  The inspectors should have caught this as it would have been an obvious error sheet.  Again, I am only guessing.  I know nothing about error notes.

I spoke with a friend who doesn't know squat about paper money errors...but,he knows plenty about printing.He told me to closely examine the transferred ink.He asked me..."is it one color?".I used a 10X loop......turns out the top note's transfer ink is green, just green.The other two notes' transfer ink is green and red (you just can't see the red colors without the loop).The 2 bottom notes are fakes.Also,Jim nailed it from the get-go.The top note proves that the transfer should include the back plate number and only the top note has that.Lesson learned, class dismissed.Still,the fakes are so eye appealing I can see paying something well over face for them.Unfortunately,I paid as if they were real and need to return them.

Wait a second, is it me or are the bottom two notes longer and possibly taller ? 

Look at the left margin on all three notes. The real note is shorter.
