Its difficult to picture what you described exactly, but I think I see what you mean/did. If I understand correctly, you measured the surface of each spigot hole to be flat and it was not.
Thats important of course, if not alone for sealing, but you still don't know if the distance from the crank centerline is equal for all cylinders right? Or did I miss s/th in your descirption?

I like the superalloy valves of Ferrea and Manley, but thats said, the korean stainless $60,- per 4 valves (15 each therefore) from aircooled.net worked well in the 270 hp version of my stock-ish 2 ltr 914 turbo engine for quit a while at that power level, so more may be overkill anyways
