View of the suit's helmet and torso.

Although the sign indicates that this is based on the Mark IV pressure suit, this does appear to be substantially different design: The Mark IV (and its Project Mercury progeny) had a large zipper running from the left shoulder and around the waist, whereas this suit appears to have a different zipper configuration.
