I have a number of these old components, which I believe are early 1960's in age. The leads are gold plated. Can these be snipped off and sold as gold pins? The second question is: What are they? They are not resistors (no continuity), capacitors, or inductors. They are composed of a sealed ceramic tube on the outside. Inside, the leads connect to what appears to be a ceramic rod that runs down the center of the tube. The rod is painted brown. The bottom left shows one that is broken open.

The numbers all come up as resistors.

Carbon metal oxide, in ceramic cases.

Yes you can trim the tails for a gold pin quote.
