Unhappy One original copy of LoR

I have a letter of recommendation from head department it was on 2009

from my university

but I have only one original letter , should I ask doctor to write another new one?

and I want to keep this letter also with me so if I send ERAS original one I will not have this letter ?

I am asking because now i am faraway from my professor .

You don't need new letter ( I know applicants last year matched with LORs from 2006). However if it easy for you to get one then get one. When you send your LORs to ECFMG/ERAS for upload (unwaived letters) you will be able to get them back at the end of the match by the service which is called RODS (check ecfmg/eras website for details).
