That's not just "green" that acetone can take away. The coin has been cleaned with a powder substance and the soap is in the nooks and crannies. See if a long soak in distilled water will help with a little gentle rubbing with a very soft cloth. I think most will come out.

BTW, I have seen and heard that there are some folks that "clean" coins using a talcum powder "blast", so it may be caked on talcum in the crevices.
