NE233H Questions

I'm being offered a 233H that at one point was converted for home use but on inspection I could see the upper housing was modified. This is also my first time being seriously offered a payphone so I need to verify it's an easy restoration or will be equally as unobtanium as with my Millennium.

The bell has been replaced with a buzzer and referring to other images on google there is an additional assembly that should be attached to the coin chute which is missing. Otherwise the rest seems to be there, albeit no keys and the coinbox and plate lock is missing.
My guess is the missing parts are for coin detection which was wired out. Would these be fairly easy and inexpensive components to find replacements for in order to convert it back?
