What is this part?

Hi,
I was pulling apart a walkie talkie to do some modifications on it and came across an odd part, I found the microphone lead, there was only a single wire, I then noticed that the mic was mounted on a paper backing, so I pulled the paper and instead of finding an ordinary mic I found a small part, about 3mm circular, it had a brass outside coating and a small dolop of metal that resembled lead in the middle, the paper I mentioned earlier actually has a coating of foil on the side of the part, this foil and the mic wire have continuity. Does anyone know what this is?
Thanks SlicRic

Thanks for your help, the part is actually a ground connection, the speaker actually doubles up as the microphone in this walkie talkie
