The lower price is because the yield to maturity should be about the same on the two issues. You'll get ~$0.50 extra when the OSM is redeemed in about a year (versus market price today). You'll get ~$1 when ISM is redeemed in two years. Coupon is about the same.

Retired in 2013 at age 33. Keeping busy reading, blogging, relaxing, gaming, and enjoying the outdoors with my wife and 3 kids (4, 10, and 11).

Right, thanks.

So about 4% real yield (inflation plus 2% coupon, about 2% on principal), wow !
