I don't see this as significant. The "script g"
of the IPA looks very much like a "script a" with
a j-like tail. In the context of the German
dictionary you show, I would probably argue to
encode /g/ with "g" and the "stimmhaftes sch"
with the IPA "script g". It's clear that the
letter used is a capital G with a tail and not a
small letter, which is why a capital might be
used. But the dot n that capital form is not
significant. And the small-capital-g you've drawn
with a dot above is, to my mind, a bit silly.
