Try soaking the coin in Acetone as the green could be PVC. Do not wipe a proof. If the coin has mirrors almost any wipe will create fine hairlines.

with Slider.

If some of the green came off with a wipe, it is probably PVC residue. Pure acetone (paint section) will do wonders on that. Wiping a proof with anything can cause hairline scratches.

Take a look at the lower right coin here (also silver). That was pure PVC residue and an acetone bath took all of it off:
