....Damned if I know. Maybe bonds just go up and down in price in increments of ten dollars, so there's no reason to show the zero. Its not an uncommon practice in a lot of things.

When trying to figure out how many board feet (144 cubic inches) of lumber I can get out of a log, it gets measured in increments of ten.
So if I can get 160 board feet of lumber from a log, it gets recorded as 16, not 160.
