Card (in Swedish?) reads "abIDkort IDENTITETSKORT" and gives the name and ID number as well as black-and-white drawing of the id's owner (Maria Erickson); stamped across the id in large red letters is `PROV' (VOID?); embedded in the lower left portion of the card is a small laser transmission hologram; when viewed with a laser, the hologram shows several computers (?) that read `id.'

Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
