Colour code Brown, Black, Red = 1,0 and two zeros = 1000 Ohms =
Gold band indicates 5% tolerance.
This particular type of 0.25W carbon film resistor was chosen
because it has the traditional clear colour codes on a light

like this are sometimes shown in schematic diagrams as a zig-zag

Europe, that schematic symbol disappeared at about the same time
