As for the trophy being legit doubled dies, I don't know. I don't think so for anything in the last 20 years. It was fun to find one, but once you do find one in newer coins they are so minor and can't be seen without a loupe. The last 5,000 coins I've gone through I never even bothered looking for DD. I did however get a kick looking at some of the MD I found instead (not that I kept them or anything except for 1 or 2).
I'd assume for those that started here looking for errors (myself included) and had the kind & loving help of the regulars here (I kid, people were nice to me) tell them MD/PMD 15 times, a sane person begins to catch on. The real trick I found for coin roll hunting and learning is to not look at every coin like it could be something special. If it looks like crap, 99/100 times it's only ever going to be worth face value and not worth the 2x2 and staples. So it ends up immediately in "bank bin". The only caveat is key date still gets a quick check like Close/Wide AM cents, etc. It helps keep the pace a little easier and your brain stops playing tricks on you.
Sorry for the rambling, I actually just posted a MD I found last week. https://www.cointalk.com/threads/2019-s-business-strike-lowell-quarter-machine-double.346845/
