I will guarantee you that it is from being dropped and not from water damage. You need to notify the shipping company ASAP. Don't even take it out of the box unless Jeff tells you to. You can clearly see where the foam insulation was compressed from the hit. Also the corner of the box is torn open. To check the driver for rubbing you do not take it out. You just press evenly on both sides of the cone to see if it is rubbing.
If you are present when a package is delivered, you should have the driver note any and all damage shown on the box. I can also guarantee you that the driver knows that that box took a hard fall even if he did not do it. I have shipped and mostly received 1,000's of items and have seen that type of damage often.
