If they are only 1/3W at most, then they are probably not much of any use, what a bummer.
They would make an excellent load resistor for an MC cartridge.

Here is another picture, Cliff, do they look like manganine?

Dunno.

I'm not sure manganine has a "look" (or a sound ) but if you want a stable wire-wound 1K to 1M ohm resistor in a tiny package there aren't too many alloys that one can use.

I was just guessing on his.
Yes, the resistors themselves are small. But if you want to push any more than a few watts through them, you have to have enough radiating area to shed the heat, so they will have to be mounted on an appropriately sized heat sink.
