It's been awhile since I updated this thread.

I just found out that Mr. John Piscopo's collection is being sold off by his daughter through another individual. I checked his "AFST Yahoo group" to see if the Rhomphia photos are still in his Photo gallery and they are not anymore. But I did save all the ones he did post there for our files.

In the meantime, here are a couple of better photos showing the blade's engraving of the "eagle and star" to match the Machiera the owner has.
