Your raised account number may be the same, but isn't the flat printed four digit security code on your newer card different?
Delta's computers know that I have a Delta Amex card. It automatically shows up on my SkyMiles account page. Delta's computers know the type of card (Reserve) and the associated benefits. This computer awareness is reflected every time I check bags, and every time I get a boarding pass. I don't even have to present the card when I visit the Sky Club. Delta's computers already know. I'm not sure if that gives you any insight about what you are trying to do, but I say this to say that I never have been asked to physically present my Delta Amex card to any Delta decision maker for any reason.
Flashing your old expired card to the checked baggage agent may or may not get them to waive the fees. The security code on the old card will indicate that the old card is no longer valid, because it will not match the security code on the current valid card, despite the account numbers being the same. If a waiver is granted, it will be likely a manual override waiver on the agent's part, just to move on to the next customer in line.
