It’s a right (closing) single-quote (used, as hernesheir said, as an apostrophe) encoded in UTF-8 and subsequently mangled by Microsoft Windows, which obtusely uses its own character encodings in place of Unicode.

I think the "â€ ™" stuff begins with an OCR error involved with apostrophe-s. Sometimes Asian characters are inserted as well, particularly in the Latin examples.
