Better the authenticated one from the NSO office. Also you can request for another copy if you need it coz you said it is not clear when photocopied.

Just wanna share my case. I have my NSO authenticated birth certificate and that is the copy I brought for my interview but the lady who collected the documents asked for a copy of my BC from the local civil registry. She said the copy from the NSO is not clear.

They gave me the white paper for additional documents because of that. So the approval of my Visa was delayed. If you can bring both, its much more better.

Though there are no expiry dates on birth and marriage certificates, the US Embassy is quite finicky on these for whatever reason. Also, they are very finicky on the dates of your CENMAR/CENOMAR.
