    original or original of

    Hi,

    please advise, which one is correct:

    She will send you her original passport

    or

    She will send you the original of her passport

    I mean, she will send you an original, not a copy.

    Thanks!

    Re: original or original of

    So then, is it correct:

    "I forgot my original credit card"?

    Yes, but we would normally say "I forgot my credit card" without using the word "original",
