where do you find TINTS?

My broker sold me TINTs when I did a 401k rollover back in 1989. Eventually interest rates fell and I sold them. (That is why I know about them; that is why they are listed on the Wiki Bonds article.)

There is not much info available on them. They are mentioned in the STRIPs article (linked from the Wiki article) on the Treasury Direct web page, but there is no corresponding TINTs article. That makes me think the institutions that do the STRIPs as derivatives have no trouble finding markets for the TINTs. One suspects they are private placements.
