Turn it into a PvP horde
I don't understand the point of having 2 of the same class on the same server (and faction), but ay whatever floats your boat~
But... Its a shaman... Not your son lol
Just realm x-fer to a free server. And since noone will be there you can feel like one of a kind
I wouldn't delete it if you still have room on the server it's on to make new characters.
I've got an 81 draenei hunter, 81 orc hunter, 85 draenei shaman and 90 pandaren (horde) shaman all on one server. Then I made a new hunter on another server and got it to 90.
I can't delete any of them anymore. I've just put too much time into each one that it would make me sad.
Don't get me wrong, I can see your reasoning. Once upon a time when my druid was still alliance and cap was 85 I decided I would level a new druid on horde instead of just faction changing the night elf. In the end, I got the horde druid to 74 before I ended up faction changing the 85 druid, and I deleted the 74 druid. I still kind of regret that.
Delete the Panda. Dwarves FTW!
I was in a similar position a few expansions back. I deleted a 60 Hunter and a 70 Warlock and then paid to server transfer my old 'vanilla' mains of the same classes that had previously been stuck on a different server, and as a different faction. I wanted my old character's pvp titles.

I have 2 druids (one lvl 90, the other lvl 89) both of which are purely for farming profs (skinner/miner; herber/miner). Only reason for that is that druids are superior for farming.
I have lvl'd toons to max lvl in previous expacs to help get guild achieves only to delete them once the achieves were attained. Those toons had served their purpose.
I have only deleted one max lvl toon that I regret, but I transferred my pally from another server to take it's place.
I would just keep both shamans until u need the extra character slot.
Ran into this dilemma years ago, prior to faction (and even server) transfers. Started fresh on a new server for BC and leveled up a second warrior. Left my vanilla warrior to basically rot, but could not delete him mainly because I had my old pvp title on him. Fast forward to Cata, and I end up faction AND server transferring my vanilla warrior to join a friend. Otherwise, my vanilla warrior would probably still be 60ish (I had dabbled on him some prior to the transfer but never took it seriously). Said warrior stands to be the toon I level in order to obtain the Double Agent achievement.
I can't bring myself to delete any toon I spend a significant amount of time on.
I'd personally keep him around until you either decide hes worth swapping off the server or until you're in dire need of a character slot but in the end its obviously upto you and how attached you feel to the little guy, if you have any fun memories with him and his leveling adventures, think about all the time you sat there behind him cheering him on as he grew stronger level by level, is it really worth pulling the plug? sentimental values can rank up there in importance.

Dwarves look terrible, as do their animations (more specifically, melee). If you delete one, make it the Dwarf, imo. Though I'd wait until you actually need that slot.
I think you already know the answer to your question.
