Nope, the original cup (just the bowl, without a base) sits in the "Lord Stanley's Vault" display at the Hall of Fame, along with the 'retired' rings of the cup base, and as far as I know never leaves. Probably with good reason, because I recall it looking pretty aged and fragile when I visited. One of the replicas may be considered more 'real' than the other(s), but none of them is the 1892 version.
