Default Is my passport card "damaged" or would it be wear and tear?

Hi everyone,

one more question - My US passport card is still in perfectly good shape minus the one issue that the plastic laminate on the back has come up. It's still mostly attached, but I am worried that this would be considered "damaged", as I'm travelling in July, I don't have a ton of room for error here, but it's also VERY difficult for me to attend an embassy in person for a variety of reasons.

I've had no issues travelling through to the US with the card in its current condition, so I'm leaning toward it not being considered "damaged", the front is in perfect shape beyond some minor wear and tear from being taken out to present at the border. Even the damage to the back is relatively minor beyond it peeling up.

Thanks in advance.
