Default silver, gold, silver, black, brown Who can read its value?

Hi, it's the color code on a resistor, I'm unsure its order is silver,
gold, silver, black, brown
or brown, black, silver, gold, silver.
I never seen color code like this before, anyone know how to read it ??
thank you.

I'd suspect it starts with brown-black, but for me silver doesn't compute in the
middle position. Have a close look at that third band and check out:

Thank alot : budgie
But it's very sure = brown, black, silver, gold, silver

Measure it with an ohmmeter and let us know how many ohms. Maybe then we
can figure out the color code!

Probably 0.1 ohm 5% but odd to have the extra silver band.

might the extra silver be a temperature co-efficient band?

I suspect the 'silver' is actually grey.

That was also my bet, which is why I suggested a close look at #3.

I agree with 0R1 @ 5%. I would suggest also that it is possibly a fusible /
safety resistor, particularly if it is open circuit with no obvious signs of
distress. I have seen fusibles with extra silver or gold bands on them, that
appear to make no sense in the value scheme. If it is such, it should be
replaced with a similar type and rating only, to preserve safety, and likely
compliance. What is the piece of kit that the resistor is in, and
whereabouts in the circuit? Might give an extra clue.

Don't know if this might be of some help ??

0.1 Ohms

Brown - black - silver

1 - 0 - x0.01

That's only if you treat it as a four-band code.
