FP 2 - JPD, no. 1500 a, b, c (C size) [P&P]
seems as it possibly could be genuine.
While FP 2 - JPD, no. 1478 a, b, c (C size) [P&P]
is without doubt a later facsimile version.
FP 2 - JPD, no. 1500 has a potential of being genuine, however it could also be a later facsimile version but it's very difficult to judge the paper and colours in the small images.
There are a few different faked versions of this triptych which I have encountered over the last 40 years. The FP 2 - JPD, no. 1500 version is quite commonly seen.
