Danzig 5-PFENNIG (KM151) Turbot

Danzig issued some very interesting coins between 1923 and 1935, and after years of patient fishing, I finally landed this 5-pfennig piece to go with the larger 10-pfennig coin.

The turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) is a flatfish, meaning, it has both eyes on one side of its body -- in this case the left side. It is a highly prized food fish that can grow up to 100 cm long and 25 kg in weight.
