    Congrats James !
    I wish I'll still be able to spot, research and buy coins when I'm over 90

    Thank you, Q. I hope your wish comes true - all you really need is Coin Talk, a wheelchair and (based on the way things are going now) lots of money!

    If you had to only buy one coin for the year, I think you made a good choice!
    Looking forward to seeing what 2021 brings.

    There is a certain added appeal to the REST coins! This is a good one.
