As for what would happen if the Cup were ever lost or stolen, any soccer fan would tell you that you'd need to enlist the help of Pickles the dog.
No, the Cup donated by Lord Stanley was retired (last used in 1970). The "Presentation Cup" is the Stanley Cup used now, which was created in 1963 but first used in 1971, has the mistakes on it. The replica is the one used in the HHOF, which doesn't have mistakes on it, is only shown on display at the HHOF when the Presentation Cup is somewhere else, like in an arena or wherever.
