..Yeah, I’m probably overthinking this by at least a factor of ten.
This puzzle's been bugging me for a while, so I thought I'd take a crack at it.
I think the letter is
Which is a
Going word by word, you can construct a simple representation of each of them using it.
Quotation mark(s) " look like two tiny "l"s.
The equals symbol = looks like two "l"s on top of each other.
The symbol for a Hospital + looks like two "l"s, crossed.
A simple spur x looks like two "l"s, crossed.

An argument could be made for the answer being
but that is a letter that appears in a clue word, while
I'm not sure... The answer could be
1. The letter "u" appears 4 times, which is uncommon in English.
2. The letter counts produce two individual "dots" and one "line", which is morse code for "u":
I think it might be..

True/false can also be displayed as Y/N.
Got nothing yet.
If you look at a spur off of a boot from the top, it closely resembles the letter Y.
The letter Y starts out wide and gets slimmer the further you go down.
