Default Blown piston? or valve smashed into piston?

Hi all, I've recently purchased a sight unseen auction car, and its much worse than I imagined.
When it arrived on the back of the truck it was sitting on its bump stops and I wasn't game to start the engine as the coolant reservoir was empty (and I mean completely empty and missing its cap) plus the second from the front on the right hand side of the engine spark plug and ignition coil had been removed, and this is what I could see using a small camera.

What do you think? blown piston? or is that valve material melted / squashed in there?

Well I've decided to part car out. Checkout my "post" in the for sale section. Could be some bargains for the USA forums members due to the Australian / American dollar exchange rate at the moment. At the moment the whole car is available so get to me early, first in best dressed.

Thanks.
