According to Grove Music, autograph manuscripts "of the op.2 set are lacking" and the Trio Sonata "in F (HWV392) has the characteristics of Handel’s Italian period, but the others are hard to place and (despite the quality and popularity of the G minor trio HWV393) are of questionable authenticity."
