Got these two at a garage sale yesterday:

Nothing too special, but they should clean up nicely. One question though, the cover does not seem to latch at the bottom on the 554. There is a brass piece on the inside of the cover at the top but not on the bottom. Is this piece made of unobtanium?

If it's a Western Electric 554 the only place I know of is the latch in on the bottom. Sometimes the hooks would get bent (on purpose) that made them harder to open.

I am hoping Sam and Arthur will chime in.
Here's a picture of the inside of the cover:

You're missing the bottom piece with the 2 hooks. And the screw that holds it in place. (Truth be known, probably the threads in the plastic are stripped or the hole itself is split.)

I have them in abundance on a pile of old phones. Free.
