Yesterday I got 2 new messages saying:

You've earned the "Marshal" badge (Raise 500 helpful flags).

I've already earned a Marshal badge and I thought you could earn this only once. Since I do not have 1000 helpful flags or more, I couldn't have gotten a 2nd one or even a 3rd.

I should have 8 Gold Badges, but it now shows 10 :D

This can't be right... Is this a bug?

See the weirdness here all summed up in one screen (and beautiful drawings included):

    Whaaat? Free gold badges. I want those. I think the Marshal badge can be earned only once. So I guess this is a bug. I think we should summon @Pops in here to clear this up.

Ok. I found something.
Apparently SE devs screw up from time to time :)
Excavator and Marshal badges are being awarded over and over
