We had a tortoise thst used to lay eggs very similar to that, so near a marsh, I would go with the turtle as well.
If it was a gold color, I would have said a goose!

Perhaps dropped by a bird? Or maybe a traveling animal? What do you guys think?
Crows may have raided turtle nest and dropped egg. See this around sand traps close to pond where the turtles laid eggs and the crows raid the nest they drop eggs every where.

You stated the shell is not hard. Far as I know, no expert, all birds have hard shells on their eggs and do not abandon the nest.

So I would guess a reptile. As to identifying it, you might try the cooperative extension or perhaps a zoo. It is possible that it is still alive. Hatching it and releasing it, is an unlikely to be successful project and if it is the egg of an,"undesirable," snake or? May not be a."good," idea.

...but I don't think you have to sit on it to hatch it
