I am trying to decide whether, and when, to sell my I-Bonds, which were bought when the fixed rate was 1.0% - 1.2%.

Updating the Savings Bond Wizard, all the I-Bonds bought in May of 2004-2005 show a yield, but no rate (e.g. the rate on the 5/2004 I-Bond shows 4.12%, but the yield shows N/A).

Has anyone else seen this?

Any advice on selling these I-Bonds? We are in the 15% tax bracket, since much of our income is non-reportable (IRAs and Savings Bonds). If the Savings Bonds are sold, I have to be careful not to go into a higher tax bracket.
