Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Here coupon rate = 6.5% 0f 1000 = 65 annually, i = 6.33/100=0.0633, t = 34 years

Bond price = 65[1- 1.0633^-34]/(6.33/100) +1000*1.0633^-34 = 1023.52

Bond price = 1023.52

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
