I can't make out which way up some of these go, I have several that don't look like Dehli Sultan types, all weigh arounf 3.50g

Most of these look like anonymous, late post shahi-jitals.
The first one in the second post looks more like a later samanta deva type.

thanks Anthony,I've collected a large number of these over the years & as usual I'm struggling to find the right way up for some of them, usually the Bull is recognisable but the reverse is difficult, this one has more legend below than most of my others

A bit modern script for my comfortzone, but i am quite positive this should be read as part of "Suritana Sri SamSaDin".
So this likely is a Delhi Ghorid jital of Iltumish. This also fits with the hooked nose of the bull.
