We got 8, knowing it was probably overkill but wanted to make sure that we'd never need to go back there for more. :P So far one needed for the AOS application, one sent to the Finnish Embassy to put our marriage on record in Finland as well.

We got one and have yet to show it to anybody. Will be taking it to the citizenship interview in 2 weeks. Other than that we used photocopies of it for applications.
