I got this wonderful silver six pence, but on photographing it, it clearly has a small rim damage where there is some corosion... it is sadf sad sad ebcause it is a beautiful coin overwise, but there is nothing that can be done with this

That's unfortunate but it doesn't distract much from the overall look of the coin. As a matter of fact, if it weren't for the small green spot of verdigris it would be barely noticeable. Overall, a very nice coin.

100% in agreement with Bruce. Clean away the green and it isn't noticeable. Who cares anyway? There is no detail of any importance so close to the rim, so the ding won't hinder your research.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

how would you remove it?  With a toothpick?

A tooth pick is the safest way. I personally would apply a small amount of vinegar using the tip of a tooth pick but this can damage the toning. Always try on a low value coin first.
