That might very well be true (my own collection tends to have many fewer of this format, but that's because I collect unique samples of formats, not really caring what's actually on them).
However, in my own experience, I've found that it's not at all infequent for someone to assume that just because something's on 8" media (or 5.25" and not DOS) must be CP/M. This is not the case more often than you'd think. There was quite a proliferation of proprietary operating systems back in the 8" days.
This is not to impugn the statements of the original poster, but rather to point out that his client SAYS it's CP/M. But we don't know for certain, do we?
For me, that's where the fun begins!
