Referral Letter by Insolvency Administrator OK?

hello all,

I would appreciate your opinion regarding a referral letter.
The one and only firm I worked for went bankrupt on me (not my fault) so I happen to have two referral letters which are absolutely the same in content but have different "names" and have been signed by different people:

1. Zwischenzeugnis ("Provisional" Referral Letter) regularly signed by my former direct boss and the department boss. this was given to me upon maternity leave (planning to go back).
2. Zeugnis ("Final" Referral letter) signed by the Insolvency Administrator when he took over and after I had resigned of my own will.

Now probably it would be more correct to include n. 2, but I feel a bit uncomfortable about how the insolvency administrator is going to come across: can a future employer think that at that stage they were giving everybody positive referral letters to make up for the loss of the job?

this was not the case: as I said, he just took the same letter as before and signed... so I am quite tempted to include letter n. 1 instead (it states in the letter that the reason for the referral is due to maternity break), even if the employer might ask himself WHY I dodn't get a final zeugnis

thank you so much for your input, even if just subjective!
