This is one of the most popular questions. Your damaged passport will be replaced by a completely new passport with full 10 year validity and a new number.
No. If you have already reported your passport lost or stolen, the passport is no longer valid and must not be used for travel. If you attempt to use your reported lost or stolen U.S. passport, you may encounter issues when traveling abroad. After reporting your passport lost or stolen, you must apply for a new passport in person using Form DS-11.
Definitely not. Your new passport will have a different number than has never been used on any other passport.
