PCN Redditch - mitigating circumstances?

I have a PCN for parking in a residents area for longer than 15 minutes without displaying a permit. I'm not querying the legality, as although I am a resident and have a permit, it had fallen off and I stupidly forgot to replace it straight away. So it was in the car, but not where they could see it properly.
My question is, is it worth asking for mitigating circumstances to be taken into account, as the council can see from their own records that I have had a valid permit for months, and it was just a silly mistake on my part. (I can't see that any of the statutory grounds for appeal apply, as they were handing out warning notices for a couple of weeks after the system came into place, to give people chance to get their act together, and the permit scheme is clearly signed on my road where I parked.)
All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.
