  2.  Proof that a distributee has received an instrument or deed of distribution of assets in kind, or payment in distribution, from an independent personal representative, is conclusive evidence that the distributee has succeeded to the interest of the estate in the distributed assets, as against all persons interested in the estate, except that the independent personal representative may recover the assets or their value if the distribution was improper.
