Maybe a piece of the insulation around the winder contacts?

Its impossible to say without stripping the camera down because there are several of these parts in the ME Super. Its one of the "bump stops", possibly from the mirror box mechanism on the right hand (shutter button) side of the camera. These hard rubber stops get brittle with age. They are there to damp the action of various levers so they do take a bit of hammering over the years.

The camera might work fine but the part is there for a reason and it being missing may accelerate wear on another item. If you want to return your ME Super to pristine condition, Eric (do a forum search on him) will service it for $65 which is tremendous value for money.
