Cooper's Mercury Suit Gallery


Detail of the name tag on the suit. While the right side of the tag is missing, the full tag would have read "L.G. Cooper" (for "Leroy Gordon Cooper").

Some sort of strap ran over this portion of the name tag in most pictures of Cooper wearing the suit, so it's possible that the tag was stressed by this strap.
