I've branched off a little from my stove collecting and gathering up the 8's and 8R's when I can and would like to obtain a 8F.  I have about  6 of these little stoves now, some with brass tanks, some plated/chrome and one hot running Russian clone.  This is one I'd like to have, they come up now and then.  Missed a nice early 8 a month or more back that would have gone nice with my early 8, I have one of the 8's from the '30's and another odd one that came in the case from the '30's but is not like my original that came from a very knowledgeable collector.

I believe one of the old stoves I picked up a month or more back,  is actually a 8F.  I was thrown a curve as it came in a old, blue square tin.  Cool!  My reference for a 8F did not show clear photos or a good description.  However, I would still like to get another if correct and complete, willing to pay a reasonable price.
