I'm hoping to get good enough pictures so the imaging in the background is visible. I think maybe, from the color could be a penny planchet?

it was not struck on a cent planchet, if it was, there would not be enough material to complete the coin, there would be almost no rim, and all the outer details would be falling off the edge of the coin, so to speak.

You have a fully struck, fully detailed coin..

What makes you think it may have been struck on a cent planchet?

If I am not mistaken it appears that there is a copper layer between the clad layers. Normal quarter

It's hard to tell in the pictures because I suck at cropping them, but it has some copper coloring tint to it and on the rim too

@melissa, can you please post the weight of this coin? That should help us to confirm that your coin was struck on a quarter planchet.

Melissal88, the copper clad layer isn't always uniform. As silverwolf above said, it would be obvious if this was struck on a cent planchet... all of the details on your quarter wouldn't physically fit on a normal cent planchet. Your quarter appears to be very normal looking.

Well in 1986 the mint was not striking coins for any other country so what planchets would be possible? They weren't striking dollars so that is out, a half dollar planchet wouldn't fit in the collar or the feed fingers so that is out. A cent or dime planchet would be MUCH smaller than a quarter and that obviously isn't the case so those are out. A nickel planchet is close to the proper size but even there it probably wouldn't completely fill the coining chamber so at least part of the rim would most likely be missing somewhere, and the edge would be a solid color, but you mention that this shows the clad and copper layers so it is not a nickel planchet. That only leaves one possibility, this quarter was struck on a quarter planchet.

Quarter planchet, normal quarter. I agree with everyone else's response. Keep looking and good luck!
