Grissom Mercury Suit

In a corner, behind a glass wall, with a light which was lit only intermittently, was a Mercury space suit with a "V.I. Grissom" name tag.

This must be a training suit, as I believe the Grissom Project Mercury suit formerly displayed at the Astronaut Hall of Fame is his actual flight suit. This is definitely a different suit than the one I photographed at the AHOF, as the SLSC suit has a simple patch where the biomedical connector would be located.
