First published in "Keyboard concertos from manuscript sources" (Complete works., Series III., Chamber Music ;, 9,9, Los Angeles: Packard Humanities Institute) along with H.434 and H.437, at least one of which (H.437/W.29) has also been digitized by D-B. OTOH, a number of copies, some of which have been digitized, exist, so this may not matter!
