Estate of Emanuel Trompeter, Deceased, Robin Carol Trompeter Gonzalez and Janet Ilene Trompeter Polachek, Co-Executors - Page 6

               In addition to Pasko’s claim and the finder’s fee document,            
          respondent based his determination of unreported assets on                  
          information furnished by certain individuals and on the value of            
          assets seized from safe deposit boxes in the name of the                    
          decedent’s trust (Trust) during the audit of the estate’s Federal           
          estate tax return.  Respondent conversed primarily with four of             
          the decedent’s intimate friends and the decedent’s two main                 
          suppliers of many of the assets collected by him.  The first                
          friend, Vivian Ballard Wong (Wong), had a personal relationship             
          with the decedent from February 1987 through June 1991.  Wong               
          described to respondent a collection of jewels in the possession            
          of the decedent in 1991.  The other friends, Ira and Larry                  
          Goldberg and Robert Hesselgesser (Hesselgesser), generally                  
          relayed to respondent facts establishing that they had personal             
          knowledge of the decedent’s gemstone and jewelry collections, and           
          they described to respondent certain gemstones and items of                 
          jewelry which they had seen in the decedent’s possession near the           
          time of his death.  One of the decedent’s suppliers, Dr. Nathan             
          Mamiye (Mamiye) of New York, New York, confirmed selling loose              
          gemstones, jewelry, jade, and ivory to the decedent and provided            
          respondent with receipts reflecting a large dollar amount of                
          diamonds which he (Mamiye) had recently sold to the decedent.               
          The other supplier, Lloyds Fine Jewels (Lloyds) of New York, New            
          York, provided respondent with receipts reflecting more than $1
