I have 8 metal tape reels from Scotch, they are all just empty reels.
Some are for 806, and some just say Scotch.

I plan on selling them on eBay.

What would make the most sense for a buyer, please?

One lot of 8, two lots of 4 or four lots of 2?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Well, brand new 10" flange+screw kits from Acrometals are three bucks
each. So if you are selling these as commodity items to people actually
using them, you should expect something less than that for used ones
and you should sell them as a lot (probably broken down for easier shipment)
because otherwise the postage will be more than the reels.

If you are selling them to collectors who will put them in frames and hang
them in restaurants, however, you could probably split them and sell the
flanges individually. Be sure to mention that they are RARE and VINTAGE.

How much do you think they're worth? I've never paid more than a
dollar for a metal reel with a box (I'm assuming these are standard
1/4" reels, not wider, not precision reels). I'd sell the $8 in one
lot and buy a $6 hamburger and a soda.

With a little luck, they'll be bought by a speculator who will pay $20
for the lot and try to get $10 a piece for the reels. It's eBay. What
can you say?
