It should be part of the Firkowitzsch collection in the National Library of Petrograd
with signature Evr. I B 3.

There is also a facsimille published in 1876 and reprinted 1971:

 The Hebrew Bible - latter prophets : the Babylonian codex of Petrograd = Prophetarum posteriorum codex Babylonicus Petropolitanus / ed. with pref. and critical annot. by Hermann L. Strack. - [Faks. der Ausg.] Petropoli, Ricker, 1876. - New York, NY : KTAV Publ. House, 1971. ISBN: 0-87068-111-7
