USPTO certificate

Well, my 3 year quest (going back to school for 2 courses, studying for the exam, taking it twice) to get my USPTO registration is finally over, I got my certificate in the mail today.
 
The USPTO specifies charges for additional certificates, $10 for regular certificates and $20 for "suitable for framing" versions.  Is the copy they sent me the $10 or $20 one?  I'm guessing that its the $10 one but in my opinion, it looks nice enough for framing.  Is the $20 one that much nicer?
 
Thanks.

Congratulations!
 
I got a $2.59 (at staples) frame, I should be ashamed of myself!

OK, I got curious so I called our friends at the USPTO OED.  The certificate you get when you pass the Patent Bar is the $20 "suitable for framing" certificate, not the regular $10 one.  
 
I was kind of surprised, figured that they would give you the basic certifcate and have you pay extra for the nicer one.  I guess thats their way of saying "congrats," here's a little bonus for all you've accomplished.

If that's true, I feel bad for anyone who paid the extra 20

Hey, between the extra $10 of the certificate value and the $50 check from the survey people, your're already accelerating... Grin
