Very nice early edition MASS-3 patch.  Article below is from the 8 May 1959 edition of the Marine Corps Air Station El Toro Flight Jacket, the base newspaper.  It shows the origin of the insignia.  Second photo shows some additional MASS-3 patches that I have in my collection.  Of note, the MASS-3 insignia is the oldest continuously used insignia amongst Marine Corps aviation command and control units.

 

Cheers
