In that case we could figure out whether its appearance is simply the way that font does it. Alternatively, if making double prime look different from two single primes, perhaps that's common enough across fonts, and would help to lay any doubts to rest - but so far, what I see is a spacing acute.

Well, Asmus, it isn’t one. We linguists have been taught it’s the prime.
