Default I-90 case"d" to replace PR Card with errors

Please help:

I wish to file an I-90 case "d" to replace my I-551 PR Card
(eligibility LA6 - Lautenberg-Specter Public Benefit Parolee from the
former Soviet Union), because the date showing the 1st date of
permanent residency is wrong.

Recently USCIS changed requirements for I-90 petitions and requires the
applicant to file only by mail, and submit the original PR Card as
supporting evidence:
"http://uscis.gov/graphics/publicaffairs/newsrels/I-90_050908.pdf"

Experience indicates It takes about 1 year or more to adjudicate an
I-90 petition, and, quite obviously nobody is wiling to mail the
original Green Card.

Question:
Is there a way to avoid sending the original Green Card ? Would a
notarized color photocopy be acceptable ?

No, when they specifically ask for the original, you need to send it. The
reason is that they want to make sure you don't end up with two Green
Cards, and then sell one of them on the black market to illegal immigrants.

Also note that the same document says that they will expedite such cases. If
you need a Green Card in the meantime, you should be able to go to the
local USCIS office and get a stamp in your passport.
