Sun visor clips and a retaining clip for the bonnet (hood) release cable.

The “copper” thing is called the Bronze Spring Thing (BST) on this forum and is a device to provide ground to the good for radio noise suppression. Other Mercedes models of those times used a ground strap near radiator, W113 had the BST. Goes on the latch, as you say and show.
