The Type 8 has a small dial to the left with "U.S.S." and the ship's name at the top, and a series of seven wavy lines about two inches long to the right to cancel the stamp. It is essentially the same as a Type 7t except that the wavy lines of the killer have been made into the form of a waving flag.

Only the following ships are known to have used the Type 8 cancel:

  1. Altair AD-11
  2. Arkansas BB-33
  3. Chicago CA-29
  4. Florida BB-30
  5. Lexington CV-2
  6. Melville AD-2
  7. Nevada BB-36
  8. New York BB-34
  9. Pennsylvania BB-38
  10. San Francisco CA-38
  11. Saratoga CV-3
  12. Texas BB-35
  13. Utah AG-16
  14. Whitney AD-4
  15. Wyoming BB-32

In addition, Type 8 cancels were issued with "Destroyer Squadron No. 3" and "Destroyer Squadron No. 14" in the dial instead of "U.S.S." and a ship's name. These cancels were used aboard the USS Dobbin AD-3.
