Default Fordhook Fancy

Does anyone know if seed for this variety is still available? It's supposed to be a Dwarf with purple tomatoes somewhere between plum and paste sized.

Thanks. It was the American Breeder article that got me wondering initially. I'm basically just trying to figure out the identity of a tomato I remember from when my age was still a single digit. It's an ongoing thing. I though the name was Fork Folly, although now I'm thinking Fork might be Fordhook. Fancy's description sounds close, but Folly was a dark orange, not purple. My great uncle grew it every year.
