This question already has an answer here:

In Inception, Cobb uses his dead wife Mal's totem. It is not clearly mentioned or shown what was Cobb's original totem? Or did I miss something? Help please.

  • Good catch of related questions @NapoleonWilson. The first does ask the identical question at the end. However it asks that only tangentially to it's main question of why Cobb switched from his totem to his wife's totem. This question seems to me not to be a duplicate and belongs as a separate question. Note that it would be possible to answer either without answering the other. – Bob Stein Dec 17 '14 at 17:03
  • @BobStein-VisiBone If it can be reworded, I'd vote to reopen. – Ben Plont Dec 18 '14 at 20:40
