There are countless design variations from all over the world.Here is a basic overview,but there are a lot more than this.Somebody need to compile as many as possible into a book.

A piss take of a debunked theory.

Interesting website! i found the triangular "spider" style adaptors are the best as issued in the 60's and early 70's, the centre hole is slightly smaller than the "spiral" ones, they play without any sideways distortion and once locked in they stay there, and do least damage to the label, avoid those thick metal ones, also some of the spiral ones commomly used have spikes on and can damage the picture sleeves.

The "KPL" adapter shown on that web page is the type that used to be in one of my records, although mine was still all there. It was very prone to coming out. Eventually I got a proper turntable one and removed that, and the only other one I had. I only ever had one other record with a large hole, and bought that as is, with no adapter. In the UK, most 45s, when new, had a regular hole - exceptions were normally imports (both US and European). Punch-out centres were not uncommon until the 1980s. Of course, ex-jukebox records would have the large hole.

I assume you have one by now...The regular small hole spindles are still quite easy to get. The rca style ones are not, these are very rare and af far as I know these were sold as an extra, mainly in the USA. They will fit any Dual changer.
