M4 Turret movement resistor puzzle.


 

I am seeking to restore an M4 turret movement.  Robert Miles in his book says that it did not have a resistor connected in parallel with the coil.  My one does.  Across the two terminals connected in parallel to the coil is a 250 ohm resistor.  What was its purpose?
