Default SS Photos are these known repros?

I have a chance to buy a group of photos which includes the ones below. I am having some real doubts about these particular photos. Are these exact ones known to be commonly-faked?

Smaller photo is postcard size while the others are even bigger.

I'm not a master detector, but they look fake to me... They seem to have the artificial yellow hue on the borders.... The only one that looks semi legit is the one at the bottom to the left.

Do you have a backside shot?

A red flag is that they all have the samme appearence in development and cut, although they are clearly all diffenrent soldiers. They should have been made at different studios. We need a backside shot.

What I see now right now, I would pass on!

regards Jens

I don't like the look of them. Seeing the backs might help but on the basis of what is shown I'd pass.

One of them is here with the same border yellowing :
