# od -c
sudo semanage fcontext –at samba_share_t /path/to/share
0000000   s   u   d   o       s   e   m   a   n   a   g   e f   c
0000020   o   n   t   e   x   t     342 200 223   a   t       s a   m
0000040   b   a   _   s   h   a   r   e   _   t       /   p   a t   h
0000060   /   t   o   /   s   h   a   r   e  \n

You get the error because that isn't a hyphen, it's an en-dash. Someone 
probably copied and pasted from Word.
