Last night when I opened the rifle case that stores my TX200, I noticed a dark metal piece in the bag. The piece is rounded on one side and flat on the opposite side. Before opening the gun up, I thought I would try the experts here on the forum to see if it's indeed a part of the main spring. I checked numerous youtube vids and I don't notice any dark colour, metal washers in the tophat or rear spring guide. This leads me to believe it's a piece that snapped off the end of the coil on my main spring; most likely at the end by the rear spring guide. I attached 2 pics for your perusal.
I tested the gun on the Chrony and the velocities are consistent to the averages I was attaining previously. The accuracy is still there and there's no noise when I cock the underlever. Everything seems okay; right down to the trigger pull and double recoil.
My Tx is completely stock and there are no mods done to it.

It's either as you concluded or something not from the TX. You could verify by opening it up. Easiest springer there is to work on.

Sure looks like an end piece of coil spring ground on on one side.

If you haven't dismantled the gun yet I can't imagine how a piece spring could get out of the internals.

After doing some more searching on the internet. My early assessment was indeed correct in that the broken piece came off the main spring.There's an opening under the TX200 by the underlever where I can actually see the mid section of the main spring when the rifle is cocked. That opening provides enough room for the half inch piece of metal from the main spring to fall out. When I saw a pic of the TX200 factory spring on the internet, my question was answered. The end portion of the spring looks exactly like the piece I found in the case.
