Law/Patents - Insurance
German term or phrase: [Datum] nk
On the first page of an insurance contract, near the signatures, I come across:
"Ausstellungsort, Datum: Düsseldorf, den 10.01.2005 *nk*."
Nebenkosten does not seem to make sense. I'm wondering if it's not a typo (inkl.) but it looks like a long shot, as coverage is from 1 Jan. to 1 Jan of the next year.

It doesn't really help that 2 letters are practically unsearchable on the net. Thanks to anyone who can give an indication.

Explanation:
These might be the initials of the person who drafted and/or signed the contract on behalf of the insurance company (or even of the typist).

Right, upper case is mostly used for the person(s) signing whereas lower case initials usually refer to the typist. I don't know why "nk" appears in this particular place, though.

Notes to answerer
Asker: The person who signed has UB as initials, so possibly the person who drafted. But why after the date? I'm used to seeing it elsewhere.
