The name plaque of King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden

During a visit to the Swedish Space Corpration in the summer of 1996 His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden wrote his name with a felt pen on a small brass plate that was installed on the Astrid-2 satellite . The King's name was engraved into the plate following the outline of the felt-pen. The pictures below show plate itself and its location on the satellite: The anti-sun side of the spacecraft.
