In GPGshell; highlight the Key then Rt. click and choose 'Edit' >> 'All
Settings' then simply type:
You will then need to answer y/N Questions through the list of existing
Sigs until You arrive at the Signature You wish to delete. Then You
answer 'y' instead of the 'N' You've been responding with. If the Key
hasn't been Uploaded to a Keyserver then the Signature ceases to exist.
If the deleted Signature /has/ been placed on Keyservers *prior* to
deleting from Your Keyring then it is 'off' the Key only on Your Keyring
until You refresh it.

You can delete other signatures from the Key existing on Your Keyring
but it won't affect the Key on the Servers or "in the wild". Many folks
do this to keep their Keyrings as small as possible. The same thing can
be done by running the --minimize command on any Key and stripping it of
everything *except* Self-Sigs. Very small Keyrings are helpful when
using them on a thumb drive where space may be limited.
