Q: My green card is slightly damaged. I am about to apply for citizenship. Will USCIS make me file for a replacement first?
The A-number etc is still readable and I have color copies of it.
A damaged resident card will not disqualify you from applying for naturalization. You can proceed to apply if you are otherwise eligible to submit the FORM N-400.
Good luck to you.
No, you can file the N-400 w/a front & back copy of your card. Be sure to study for the test. Viz: https://www.uscis.gov/citizenship/find-study-materials-and-resources/study-for-the-test
