Fire Brigade Badge story inside the box:

In the early days of many western towns, fires were fought using ladders and hand-operated pumps or even the infamous "bucket brigade" and most of the firefighters were volunteers.

The first paid firefighting company in the United States was founded in 1853.

Even after the formation of paid firefighting companies, there were disagreements and often fights over territory because insurance companies paid the company that put out the fire. New York City companies were famous for sending runners out with a large barrel to cover the hydrant closest to the fire in advance of the engines to prevent other companies from using it.

Each high quality Old West replica badge is crafted out of brass and steel. They are double-stamped then silver plated. Next, each Old West replica badge is individually hand finished for a unique antique look. 

Each badge is packaged in an old-fashioned style Kraft box with a story inside.

Size: approx. 2 3/8" H
Back: Bar style pin

What is double-stamped brass?
Why brass instead of pewter?
