What is meta?
Here's how it works:

Last week I got a Nice Answer on SF for an answer to a question that was deleted quite a while ago.

At one point that question had been migrated over to SU, but I don't see it over there anymore so it must have been kicked back to SF at some point. I don't have 10K on SU so I can't see what it says over there.

I believe that my answer did have 10 upvotes at the point it was migrated to SU. Could it be that this badge was awarded retroactively?

After Ben Brocka's comment I noticed that all of the answers were deleted on June 1 which would explain why the badge was awarded. So now it looks like somehow the answers were undeleted and then redeleted.

You get all score based badges on the target site when a post is migrated. Are you sure it didn't get the badge after migration but before deletion? – Ben Brocka Jun 6 '12 at 13:17
@Ben see my edit. I looked harder based on your comment and there is discrepancy between the date the question was deleted and the date the answers were deleted. – squillman Jun 6 '12 at 13:22
That's...weird, but it sounds like the badge was awarded properly. – Ben Brocka Jun 6 '12 at 13:24
