Need help finding the value of this resistor

1R3W would suggest that it's resistance is 1 ohm with a power dissipation rating of 3 watts. I agree with Yaakov. Measure it's resistance. The colour coding of the resistor looks like black, black, black, silver , black. This does not make sense so it i possible that the colours have changed if the resistor was running hot. (But if it was removed from the board in your photograph that does not look like it has been effected by heat from the resistor.)

at that sort of resistance, the legs of the resistor can have enough cr*p on them to add that amount of resistance.
cean the legs and use the points of your meter probe to break the oxcidation

The meter leads might also be higher than expected resistance so it needs to either be REL'd out of measured and subtracted.
