I suppose that the old '233' front piece was from when it was a boat?
I think that was Engine 223.
As far as I know it was always Brooklyn land Engine 33, 133, and 233.

Gage,
Inserts came about 1959, illustration from Oct 1959 WNYF.  Boats got green inserts, prior to that they were black, same as any other Engine Company,

223 and 232 were boats

233 was/is a land engine

232 was both a marine and a land engine (at different times)

Fireboat Engine 85 also became a land engine; and, like 232, in a Tin House

Engine 43 and Engine 66 were the other two land engines that started out as fireboats
