nun has a tiny koitz at the bottom
This is a quite common shyla that magihim pose: the nun has a tiny koitz extending down, making a shayla of gimel.
From my experience no tinok gets mixed-up and never read it as a gimel, therefore [l'mayse] a shaylas tinok is not even called for - and one can go ahead and erase this tiny koitz.
