I-485 I-130 concurrent application I-765 EAD progress report

Hi community!

So today finally I've received my new EAD on the mail after 90+ days waiting, my EAD was issued in light of a readjustment of status application which is pending stemming from marriage to a US citizen, my previous legal status was OPT student, on a F-1 visa.

Now, I have a question in regard to this new card and this might be a little paranoid of me but I will still ask it.

So, as I was going through my card in order to verify all my information and I see everything seems to be in order, I started also comparing my current new EAD with the expired OPT one just to single out the differences, I notice first that the category number naturally varies for they were issued in light of different immigration status, but also that the USCIS NUMBER had changed as well, now I though this was what is known as the 'Alien Registration Number' and I use it extensively throughout my forms for the readjustment of status application. I got this number the first time though my first EAD for my OPT application, so the QUESTION is: Is it normal for this number to change like this ? Has the USCIS assign me a new USCIS # or Alien Registration number? If so, will my Permanent residence card have the same 'new' number? Or is it not normal and my EAD has an issue?

Thanks for your feedback in advance folks!
