I can say I have NEVER seen that happen from detonation or even pre-ignition. That to me looks like foreign object impact.....scratches in the dome of a piston from detonation????

That piston looks exactly like the JE pistons that were in a mazda miata motor
that ingested a speed loaders worth of toy bb gun ammo apon startup (speedloader fell into aircleaner and was not noticed). Search the mazda forums and you'll find that old post......

That to me looks like the piston dome was "shot peened" with nails............
