Remove corner-bead?

What's the best way to remove metal corner-bead that has been nailed up in an inside doorway?

I don't want to damage the drywall.

Probably not going to be able to avoid damaging the drywall if this was mudded and taped. If so, I'd try to cut the line where the bead meets the drywall so nothing cracked past that point.

After that, pull the nails - may need to use a knife or bar of some kind between the drywall and the bead to create some room to get on the nail heads.
