Presumably not. I don't think it would burn with him. Moreover, I think any arguments between his sons about succession would be more potent if there were a physical crown present in the scene.
Or was it not taken when Maedhros was captured?

It doesn't have to be. Maedhros may not have been wearing it, or he could have lost it in the battle. Morgoth could have even left it on Maedhros' head when he chained him to the wall.

I doubt Morgoth left much of anything on Maedhros when chaining him to the wall. Enough clothes to keep him decent at most.

We did a bit of discussing of Finwë's crown during seasons 2 and 3. We decided that Fëanor enlarged it to fit over a helmet and added sockets for the Silmarils. Without time to adjust it for his own helm, Maedhros likely wasn't wearing it when captured.
