iPhone 4S: Extra Parts.

I recently changed a cracked screen on my iPhone 4s and ended up with two gold metal parts left over. I cant find where they go and the phone seems to be working fine, but I want to put them back in because they had to be put there in the first place to serve some purpose. I will upload a picture when I get home to see if anyone can identify them.

*It is not the gold piece that is screwed in next to the camera, but it looks similar.

Take a picture? 'Two gold parts' is highly unhelpful

The black piece goes by where the screw is covering the battery connector
Not sure about the other
