This is just a glyph variant of U+00D6 and would decompose to U+004F U+0308. There is a
long established tradition of writing the German umlaut as a small E in display lettering
and typography, since before use of the teo dots the umlauted vowel was indicated by
addition of an e, either after or above. Sometimes the E is above the letter as in this
Austrian stamp example, other times it may be within the letter.
