Metal piece in trans fluid

Transmission

Model: 911SC, Year:1978, Mileage:160k, Type of use:Street use only
I've just drained and replaced the trans oil with Swepco in my '78 SC. Attached to the magnet was a very small metal tooth (about the size of a large match head) that had broken off. There were no other metal pieces, but a bit of the typical metallic "fluid" attached. The car has about 160k on it, trans was rebuilt at about 105k. It seems to drive and shift as it always has, which is normal. Should I be alarmed?
