Bolt handle. This isn't going to help much, but it won't hurt to have either.
It appears that you'll have to take the bolt out to get the handle out. There are other postings here about disassembling a 66 that should help you more. Just be advised that they're a nuisance to get back together.

If you can grip what's left of the bolt handle with a pair of needle-nose pliers, you can pull it out. If not, you'll have to remove the bolt to remove the bolt handle "stub".
The bolt handle is retained by the recoil spring plunger.
Other than the inner magazine tube, the bolt handle is the first part removed during disassembly, and the last part installed during assembly.
