What ever happened to the Sebastian Miniatures Collectors Society and the Sebastian Exchange?
A. Answer. The Sebastian Miniatures Collectors Society was formed in 1980 by the Lance Corporation who then manufactured and distributed most Sebastian Figurines. It focused on the primary market (new issues). The Sebastian Exchange was formed about two years later to cover the secondary market for Sebastians. The Society was discontinued in 1986 when Lance Corporation was dissolved. The Exchange continued until 2000 when it was disbanded and some of its functions transferred to Sebastianworld, Incorporated. At the present time no specific group for Sebastian collectors exists. One may be initiated by Sebastianworld if it appears that collector interest warrants such a step.
