I have 2 pieces labeled:
03 string quartet no.16 in f major (3:38)
and
in f major, h 34 allegro moderato (6:06)

Could be Op 18, 59, or his final. Anybody know, or is there a way to tell?
Thanks,
Bob.

Bob,

Op. 18 No.3 is in D major and B flat major:
No3, Op18, No3 (http://imslp.org/wiki/String_Quartet_No.3%2C_Op.18_No.3_%28Beethoven%2C_Ludwig_van %29)

Op. 59 No 3 is in A minor:
No9, Op. 59, No3 (http://imslp.org/wiki/String_Quartet_No.9%2C_Op.59_No.3_%28Beethoven%2C_Ludwig_van %29)

I think you have String Quartet No 16, Op. 135:
Op 135 (http://imslp.org/wiki/String_Quartet_No.16%2C_Op.135_%28Beethoven%2C_Ludwig_van%29 )

Mr Lenehan is right.

String quartet No 16 is opus 135

h 34 is a transcription of something else, a string work but not sure what.
