A highly controversial action by Gary Cooper at the end of High Noon. Is it referenced by any scene in a Leone film? Well, nearly, but in a reverse scenario. Early in FAFDM, after Clint has wiped out Baby Cavanagh's mob in White Rock, he tells the sheriff that he should be brave, loyal, etc. and takes his badge off him. Outside, he suggests to the townsfolk that they need a new sheriff and throws down the badge.

Cooper threw his badge away because he was disgusted with the people of Hadleyville; Clint threw the White Rock badge away out of disgust with the sheriff.
