Not sure about the first (Carus?), but I suspect that the Plautilla denarius and Seleucid tet (Antiochos VIII, I believe) are fakes. The tet should be silver.

The first one looks genuine to me.

Tripolis mint. IMP C M AVR CARVS PF AVG, radiate, draped, cuirassed bust right / VIRTVS AVGG, Emperor standing right, holding eagle-tipped sceptre, receiving globe from Jupiter, standing left, holding sceptre. TR in lower center. Mintmark XXI. RIC V-2, 128.

The Carus appears genuine, but the other two are not.

Agree with the above assessments. The top coin looks okay, the middle coin looks highly suspicious and the bottom "coin" is absolutely fake.
