 The Concept of Intrinsic Value
Intrinsic value is the archival term that is applied to permanently valuable records that have qualities and characteristics that make the records in their original physical form the only archivally acceptable form for preservation.
The qualities or characteristics that determine intrinsic value may be physical or intellectual; that is, they may relate to the physical base of the record and the means by which information is recorded on it, or they may relate to the information contained in the record.
Records that have intrinsic value should be considered for conservation or restoration; however, the determination that records have intrinsic value is only the first step in a decisionmaking continuum for preservation activities.

 Bob Jensen's Document on the Theory of Intrinsic Value
This must all be time value since options generally have no intrinsic value when they are purchased (except in rare cases when they are already "in-the-money" at the purchase date.) The time value always shrinks to zero at expiration since there is no future for the option beyond the option's expiration date.
Intrinsic value is the amount by which the option is "in-the-money." A purchased option that has zero intrinsic value when it expires is worthless at the time of expiration.
If the intrinsic value is less than the spot price on the date of expiration, then the buyer can buy the commodity for less than the forward (strike) price even though the option itself must then have zero value on the date of expiration.
