We establish the equivalence of the Maxwell-Chern-Simons-Proca model to a doublet of Maxwell-Chern-Simons models defined in a variety of covariant gauges. This equivalence is shown to hold at the level of polarization vectors of the basic fields. The analysis is done in both Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalisms and compatible results are obtained. A similar equivalence with a doublet of self and anti-self dual models is briefly discussed.
