Ordinary quarter rest in a somewhat uncommon but not unheard-of style. French publisher?
0The 'o' bit designates dim, or diminished. Slightly different from the ø which is half-diminished. Wish my keyboard could print it properly - it probably can, but I'm not clever enough to make it work! Half-dim., incidentally is aka m7b5.
As there are 4 beats in the bar, it has to be a crotchet (quarter note ) rest. It's probably easier to draw than the regular one, but there is an alternative which is the opposite way round to the quaver rest, again, easier to write.
