The Sawyers View-Master Model F (#2026) was produced between 1959 and 1966 and originally retailed for $3.95 (reels cost 35c). It was the last of the View-Masters to be made from bakelite. It ran from 2 'C' size cells or an external power source. At 5.5x magnification It offered a slightly larger view than the Model C.

The Model F was manufactured both in the USA and Belgium. There are very few variants of this model, the only significant difference being the size of the lettering on the battery cover (see pictures below)


The Belgian version has larger letters for "LIGHTED STEREO VIEWER"

The USA version has smaller letters and a slightly larger ® Trade Mark sign
(below the hyphen of VIEW-MASTER)

Users need to be careful not to let go of the advance lever as it tends to pop up with such force that it can cause a chip in the reel insertion slot, something to look out for when buying this model of viewer.
