    With the 3rd colour silver it is most likely less than 1Ω.
    Does it read anything?

    I have tried measuring it but it reads nothing. Here is a pic of it and see what you all think??

    Anybodies guess?
    'Reads nothing'? do you mean open or zero resistance?

    It reads 1 on meter I guess it's open no continuity.

    1Ω ??
    If so it is less than one ohm which is as guessed!

    Some DVMs simply show 1 to indicate out of range. Do you see the same reading with the leads not touching anything, or each other?

    I will say it is 1.5Ω
