Acceptable Piston Damage? possibly dropped...?

I have read countless posts on this forum and respect its members opinions very much and now I have a question and really look foward to hearing from yall.

I just got my engine back from the machine shop. I gave them my pistons to balance the rotating assembly aswell as press on the con rods. Either one piston was dropped at the shop or shipped damaged (I don't care to speculate). I can see that when it landed on its side, it pressed up on the top/deck side of the piston. I did my best to get a focused picture (not easy). The owner of the machine shop took a file to it and mostly evened it out but this is what it still looks like.



What do you guys think? Thanks so much.
