body's seals against moisture?

It seems to have hit lens first (ouch! The glass in the filter broke and I can't get the empty filter ring off). The body had only a few small nicks on both sides of the bottom plate, no outside deformation of the skin I could see. Everything seems to work A OK, including autofocus.

But the seal against moisture is important to me. Is there any sign I should look for (besides taking it out in the rain and seeing if it self-destructs) that the seals are not functional?

If no obvious deformation, would there be any crack even if it would be a hair thin one? If no, probably you would be OK.
