What's going on with the rim/edge of this coin?

Ex-jewelry is a good guess. Somehow, part of the rim was protected from the toning process.

It almost looks like someone hit it with a torch testing the metal Or acid test.I don't think it was jewelry cause that would be a odd spot for a loop to hang it on a chain. It would be over the E not the S so the coin would be Oriented Correctly.

That light spot above the s in states is rough and sticks out on the edge. It is why I thought it might be plated. The light part on the edge looks like a thin layer has been removed. Not particularly like it was protected.

This coin suffers from differential toning.
I feel that is the reason for the light spot above the 'S' in 'STATES" also.

One possibility that I have considered is
that it may have been in a wrapper at some stage, and that wrapper was partly torn near the edge of the coin.
