Little Alex ... or.... Little Axel?

Hello all!

Are there two Little Alex's? I have a Little Alex that a leaf was sent to me in baggie with name, mini, and vintage.
Been getting my records up to date and in my search I have found descriptions to be conflicting.

It is not on First Class. Have googled and gone to several growers web sites. Some describe it to be hybridized by (S. Sorano) single white pansy w/ blue thumbprint markings, med. green plain foliage, miniature.

Others will say (Anthoflores)semi double white pansy w/ blue thumbprint, med green foliage, Semiminiature.

Thought, okay I'll wait till it blooms again and see if the bloom is single or semidouble. (Think mine is single)- Then found another description that said (Anthoflores) was single white, dark blue patches, star, tailored. Semiminiature.
Since it is not registered I've never seen a date. I'm just trying to figure out if it is a mini or semi.

Any Clues?

I found this on ebay just now. I might no answer the question, but a least you will have a picture to compare it to when it blooms.
