Easy enough to pull that cylinder and replace the valve, guide, and seat until you decide to do a full overhaul.

Turbo, nice looking pictures and your valves look good too.

339A, good Picture of a valve going bad developing a hot spot.
Your investment in a bore scope is paying off by seeing a developing valve failure before it will happen.
Take Bobs advice and by all accounts you seem to have gotten your money's worth out of that engine.
