I would run that over some sandpaper a few times and if the plane is flat, the spot won’t affect its use. I have one block plane with some serious pitting in the sole, but it doesn’t really detract from the usability of the plane.

Regarding the 5 1/4—that’s a great plane. Hold one to it, but still you’ll want a regular No 5, which are plentiful on ebay.
