The nonparametric maximum likelihood estimate of a mixing distribution is shown to be self-consistent, a property which characterizes the nonparametric maximum likelihood estimate of a distribution function in incomplete data problems. Under various conditions the estimate is a step function, with a finite number of steps. Its computation is illustrated with a small example.
