First time benz owner

I just purchased a 1980 280E for my wife to use as a work car. This thing is immaculate. It was well taken care of. the silver paint still shines like brand new. My question to the gallery is in the glove compartment with the owners manual there is a metal plate that looks like it was used for an old style credit card machine. Was this plate used for id when servicing the car at the dealer before computers? Is it rare to find this plate after so many years? Thanks for the help!
