Are these parts from a P3N?

A while ago I got a P3N from a yard sale and it seems to be working well (I've had a roll of film in it for about six months now, so I can't tell you how the photos are coming out - turns out I'm not much of a film shooter I guess). Cleaning out the bag it came it today, I found these parts - anyone recognize them?

yep, they're from the film door. Used to guide the film end around film winder when you load the film!

hope this helps! Not sure why someone would take it off though?

Awesome thanks - I'll see if I can put it back in... I just sort of stuck the film in the slot and started winding like I used to do in the old days - seems to be winding fine, but maybe it's not being properly tensioned or something - we'll see (if I ever finish the roll that's in there...)
