Only the last banknote 500 yuan is worth $60-80

The rest are worth around $2-$15 only.

The first two photos at top w/ train, 1914 5Y.  The reverse of my note say "Tientsin".  Now look at Ebay 330679444800  asking $249.   The reverse bottom of this one says "Shanghai".   So the one on Ebay must be the rare edition?  Is the price just too high?  Maybe my note is not as in good of shape?  I am new to notes and only have a few.  Asking prices of them on ebay are climbing and more bids.....

There are about 30 different varieties of the 5 Yuan 1914 from the Bank of Communications, 3 of these are from Tientsin.
The colours of your note indicates it´s p#117n and is valued to be worth about 25$ in condition XF (according to Standard catalog of worldpapermoney, which can give an idea of what it´s worth. Found it by searching "5 yuan 1914 unc" ,2. link page 250 and your other notes are in it aswell, but probably not the 500 Yuan).

Search for IBNS Standard Grading Guide to get more info on grading.
 
Imo(!!!) the last note looks dodgy, the yellow kind of paper and the back makes me think of a replica made look old.   

I´m no pro at all, but hope this can help a little.
