Stockhausen, Bassetsu-Trio, 1998 (page 3, system 1, detail 2)
Note the white space around the arrow tip of the 'lowered' and 'lowered sharp' symbols.
This is important for legibility at small point sizes. Stockhausen uses crossed-through noteheads to indicate noises (these notes sound like wind). In a constricted space and with awkwardly ocurring accidentals, the crossings have to be rotated and shortened for maximum legibility. The grace notehead is part of the font CLicht, the other noteheads have been crossed through manually.
