Identify Spatially Identical Features Then Delete Feature With Smaller Value From Another Field

Hi guys. I have a feature class which has identical lines on top of each other (usually just 2 in total). What I want to do is identify the the line with a smaller value from one of the fields and delete that one. Is that possible? I used the Delete Identical which gets rid of the spatially identical features (using Shape as the field) but it kind of randomly deletes and don't think there is a place to specify additional criteria. Can anyone make recommendations on how to tackle? Thanks

It uses the 

Find Identical (Data Management)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

output only the duplicates, query that table for the smallest, join back to the original table and mark for deletion


... sort of retired...
