It's probably this symbol: http://www.eki.ee/letter/chardata.cgi?ucode=201e
but it has no representation in the console windows you are using; try "import sys; print(sys.stderr.encoding)" to print the code page used by your console.
In error messages, Python replaces unpritable characters with their "escaped" form: \uXXXX where XXXX is the character number.
