Unfortunately I have no early 460 pistons right now, only early 429 flat tops.

If the exact piston cannot be found then ya might as well press off and weigh the damaged one, cc its dish volume (or cc a good example), then find a ball park equivalent replacement that can be tuned.  An engine described as such (above) won’t know the difference.
