The seller either isn't very knowledgeable or rather confused.

The off-duty holster isn't a fobus blackhawk. It is a Blackhawk CQC Serpa...with the carbon fiber finish. It looks like it had the belt slide attachment mounted and is missing the paddle attachment (they come with both). If it were new, I think they are going for about $30.

The on duty holster is indeed a Ted Blocker and it looks well used. The swivel holster has been out of favor for quite some time, it is slow to draw from due to its low ride and inconsistent positioning. Many departments don't allow them at all. I don't think it was ever a $200 holster. If it were in great shape, it would be an interesting novelty to have, but for practical use...not so much
