I soaked this in acetone for a full day and it still has the "green" around the edge of the what I think is lamination? The rest of the coin is a browny except for that area!

I would say it was glued to something at some point and even if you got the glue off, it has a different color than the rest of the coin in that area. I see no evidence of a lam.

Yes @make nailed it. The glue protected the copper from toning so it is nice and shiny while the remains parts of the coin have toned.

Agree with all above. I've come across similar looking cents about a dozen times over the last several decades.
