for how long does the finder has an obligation as a shomer? starting when after finding the item he is allowed to own it?


If the finder picked it up before the owner knew it was lost, he becomes a shomer on it forever or until moshiach comes, and he cannot “own” it ever. However see the link what the finder can do.
