The thing is clearly a combination of a capital letter (G) and a lower-case letter (j). IMO, that does not make it a capital; it makes it mixed. The *closest* analog in existing characters is title-case, but in this instance caseless is another option and might make more sense.

That is a purely revisionist invention. This has no more connection to small script g than a polar bear has to a beluga whale.
