You can use Safari Prairiefire to find duplicate Safari Bookmarks.
After you install the software which you can use in demo version to do this click the Get Bookmarks tab. Then from the menu click: Tools / Check Duplicates.
I've had the same thing happen using my MobileMe account also.
Safari's bookmarks are kept in a preference file named bookmarks.plist in Home/Library/Safari/
move (or rename) that with Safari quit & they're gone from Safari - to be replaced with Apple's default set on next startup.
You can copy that file as a a backup, or yes, use Safari-File-Export Bookmarks...
In your case, It sounds as if you used Export - so just move/rename the plist, then open Safari & Import .
Naturally, removing dupes is perhaps easier in this instance, but it's worth knowing which files to copy if you want an exact backup.
