02/18/11 63 W, 1 I - + 4 - 3 Greensboro Honorary Fireman Badge

Something else interesting from eBay, an honorary fireman's badge from the Greensboro Fire Department. The seller is dating to the early Twentieth Century. Have other departments around the state have issued such badges, in recent or earlier decades? Wonder if it was strictly ceremonial, or afforded any privileges? Like fire scene access.
