Object and edit view display different same object but they are not equal

This is my first thread here, lets hope i posted in the correct forum.
I have a very strange problem.
This is my object in edit mode:

And this is the same object in object mode:

How did this happen? :eek:

(Blender 2.56a)

2 things, if I’m correct.
While in edit mode, press alt-H to unhide everything, and then select all (A to toggle selection of all or none) and press ctrl-N to recalculate the normals (Normals are the direction of a face; recalculating them ensures that they are all facing the same way)
Hope that helps! :slight_smile:

Thank you! :slight_smile: I must have accidentally pressed the H key!
