               Testimony and documentary evidence also establish the                  
          existence of other unreported assets which were includable in the           
          taxable estate.  Hesselgesser, who like the decedent was a                  
          collector, testified credibly that he met with the decedent on a            
          few occasions to discuss and inspect the decedent’s collections             
          of guns, gold coins, jewelry, ivory, and music.  Hesselgesser’s             
          testimony persuades us that the decedent had “several”                      
          collections of ivory and that the decedent in the summer of 1991            
          owned several large diamonds (e.g., 30 and 40 carats), several              
          tennis bracelets, and several large necklaces with emeralds and             
          diamonds.  Hesselgesser’s wife testified credibly that the                  
          decedent near his death possessed several diamond necklaces and             
          an extensive music collection.  The decedent’s friend, Joanne               
          Standard (Standard), testified credibly that the decedent                   
          possessed eight to 10 tennis bracelets, some of which had one-ct.           
          diamonds all around the bracelet, “fabulous” emerald necklaces,
