Consider american styyle options
Should the value of put option in a putable bond or buying a put option on the same bond(without the put option) be different?

assuming the strike price is 100
Fixed income :-
you calculate the cost of option as:- present value of non putable bond - present value of putable bond
derivatives :-
you calculate the value of the put option as the present value of the intrinsic values of the put option
What is it that i am missing?
