The US Treasury does not issue zero coupon bonds. So the ones you can buy are derivatives. Someone buys Treasuries and then splits them into a zero coupon bond called a STRIP and an interest only bond, called a TINT.I would guess the principal only listing is the Strip and the interest only is the tint, but you should be able to tell from pricing. The strip is a zero coupon bond and hence is priced at a heavy discount from face value.
