Depends on your implementation...

I see two choices: follow Common Lisp and use #S(<type> ...), or
follow SRFI-10 and use something like #,(record <type> ...).  I don't
think there is any SRFI that specifies a concrete read syntax for

We already use #s for uniform arrays, but overwrite it when (srfi
srfi-4) is loaded...  #S is free, tho.
