The final reconstruction of the Muhammad bin Sam Budaon jitals is in this thread.
Note that this is the later standard version of this type. There is also an earlier version of the Muhammad bin Sam Budaon Jitals shown in this thread. This earlier type resembles the late type of the Amrita Pala Jitals. This is also shown in the other thread. I did not make a reconstruction of this yet.

I'll add this one which appears to be an Iltutmish type with part of the ladder visible

Agree, this is a nice G&G D50 specimen. It is a pity that the text side die was so much larger than the flan size on these (likely by design). I am still lacking some specimen which nicely show the "Shams" and "Iltutmish" part of the legend.

Here is another from the same cheap lot, unfortunately marred by cut marks,  this one appears to have the 3 dots as per your first photo in the thread so an early type,  also it is showing a lot more of the legend but whether it is of help I'm not sure

Not really. The main design problem with this type is that "Shams" is at the extreme left of the upper line, while "Iltutmish: is at the extreme right bottom. Getting both on a single specimen is almost impossible.

Here one with [Iltut-] "Mish" at the bottom, extending under "Sultan". (One of the specimen shown earlier in this thread by Tariq shows this even better)

Recently added. Left side image from catalogue and right side actual coin image. Coin was slightly cleaned by seller as evident from photograph but was ok in hand as copper colour is slightly coming back.

Your photo is a bit small, but looks like a nice representative specimen of the type !
I have several of these, from good silver to almost copper. This includes some specimen with modern resilvering done by less scrupulous sellers.
