I have an address (1LeuGn7xjF9UdCn2YEHyJ4izWDmynZgC8E) that I've been using for BTC and for which I have the passphrase and wallet file. It looks like I also got BCH sent to qrte263mhwmyhpzmkry7qvkky75g5nq2evdr7cc505 , an address for which I don't seem to have the passphrase.
But if I check 1Leu... on a blockchain explorer its listed as occurring on 2 blockchains (BTC and BCH, with some coins in the BCH part) and indeed the qrte263... addr is listed as the 'cash address format' for a 'legacy address format' of 1Leu... My question is - given that I have the passphrase for 1Leu, can I / how do I retrieve the BCH from this address. I've tried copay and exodus imports so far to no avail - copay does not like the 13-word phrase and exodus says "unable to move funds - there is nothing to move from 1JGDhcoR2Q7ZHxT1wEvZxb6jvX1ZLVCNqq" when I try 'move funds' using a WIF private key generated with btc_address_dump "<BTC_passphrase>". Possibly, exodus is only checking the BTC blockchain and not the BCH blockchain. Can anyone advise?

Yes, electrum sees the transaction history for 1Leu, so far its only a 'watched address' . Also the only transactions are BTC transactions, I'm not sure how to get to the BCH blockchain for this address - the reddit link is after something like sweep private key or import addresses I suppose – jeremy_rutman 7 hours ago

So you can't go to addresses tab and export the private key for 1Leu? Can you do that? (Don't import the address, just the mnemonic seed) – MCCCS 7 hours ago

Ok I blv imported the 1Leu wallet using the WIF private key (under ;file->new/restore; i dont actually see any transactions for this new wallet however) , and now copied a private key for it (rec'v addr is listed as 13Hscc...) . I'm not sure that electrum realizes I am after BCH and not BTC tho. I guess I can now use this private key in exodus? – jeremy_rutman 7 hours ago

If the received address isn't 1Leu as you expect, it won't work, don't copy the privkey. I don't know how to help further. Have you tried bitpay.github.io/copay-recovery ? – MCCCS 6 hours ago
