I would post a vague description on Craigslist Lost and Found.  If the owner doesn’t come forward with a very specific description, I would take it to the police station.

It really doesn’t matter whether it’s real or costume, it could be very sentimental to someone.

Yep, I found a gold necklace on the sidewalk once and posted every week for 6 weeks on Craigslist lost and found, but nobody claimed it. Eventually, I gave up and just kept it. I still feel a bit guilty but I did try to return it to it’s rightful owner!

Does your town have some sort of Facebook group you could post in? My town has a sort of “public service announcements” page where people  post things like lost and found items (along with other things like community events).
