I am attempting to determine if this resistor was made by Piher or not.

The red color and glossy finish makes me think it was, however almost all the other Piher resistors I have seen have a different body shape, as in the 2nd photo below.

Did Piher manufacture 1/2-watt carbon film resistors with this particular body shape? Did any other manufacturers ever make resistors with the well-known glossy red finish like this?
