In the far distant days, the metallic color band indicated tolerance:
None = 20%, silver = 10%, gold = 5%. But that would be AFTER the third, or
power-of-ten color band. If I recall correctly, metallic IN the third
digit is negative power-of-ten, placing the decimal for very small values.
I may have the order of colors wrong, but I believe this
(brown-black-gold) is 0.10 Ohm. brown-black-silver would be 1.0 Ohm.
