    Hi thanks for letting me into this forum.. have been meaning to join years ago when i first had a look on the web for this stove.. anyways boredom and a good shed clear out unearthed it again... think its a early model with no registration marks.. but ive seen on your forum this is a matter that's been well discussed..

    many thanks

    Welcome. Congrats!
    You are correct that is a rare early version of the 8. It's not the earliest but is a very early example looks to be "original" condition incl. key (also rare).
