Issue #21737: Sapphire Dragon Claw undroppable quest item

I have cleared Shroud Hearth Barrow, including opening the puzzle door requiring the Sapphire Dragon Claw. Yet the UI says "Quest items cannot be removed from your inventory" if I try to.
This was not initially the case because I had it stored in a cupboard for a long time. Then when I pulled it out I could no longer store or drop it a second time.
I cannot see the quest "Lifting the Shroud" in my history but all the steps are done and Wilhelm has nothing to say about it.
Played on XB1, however I remember exactly the same problem on PS3 and it appears as a problem discussed in several forums.

Assuming I remember correctly, Lifting the Shroud is a quest that appears in the misc section of your journal so it won't be shown in the completed quests section.

Also, I'm able to pick up and drop the Sapphire Claw just fine in my game, but we should probably check to be sure that the claw doesn't get stuck in an alias somehow.

Have the exact same issue. I only have one MOD installed and it's this one. Had it stored on my Enchanter after the relevant quest cause it looked cool. Picked it up to move house, now I can't drop it anymore. I'm on XBox One S with Official Special Edition and latest Bethesda patch installed. Cheers guys and keep up the amazing work!!!

Thanks to A for checking in on this and although you say it is impossible, it is very much what is happening on my XBox One S with Skyrim Special Edition - I went back to check if I had done Shrouded Hearth Barrow and it states it as cleared on the map and when I went back there the big gate you use the claw for is open, yet I cannot drop it. After initial completion I had it in a Hearthfire house if that makes any difference and then picked it up and could no longer drop it. Can I support this with any screenshots or files that may be useful for you? I'm not making this up, promise. Thanks for all you do!

According to the CK data, it would be impossible for the claw to be in your inventory and still marked as a quest item if you have in fact completed Shroud Hearth Barrow. The claw is required to pass the puzzle gate, and that script explicitly calls the stage that stops the quest holding the alias. It cannot be bypassed.
