Are the cams still in the head? If so I'd put a wrench on the bolts holding the cam sprockets to rotate the cams, while looking at the valves as they open close to see if any are bent. I don't think you can really determine much with the valves fully closed. Otherwise you could remove the valves and inspect them individually by rolling the stem on a flat surface.
That said, from you pictures I personally don't see any indication of contact. There's a channel on ytube called "I Do Cars" where he tears down wrecked engines, and from what I've seen there, it's very obvious when there's been interference. "Malice in the combustion palace" as he says.
