The game you gave was already shown by Juha Saukkola (PDB # P0008140). There is a second possibility:
1. e4 e5 2. Qh5 Ke7 3. Qe5# (PDB # P0008139)

Both examples were from a mail discussion from the Retro Mailinglist in 1996. You can find all(?) compositions from that discussion on the following link: http://www.softdecc.com/pdb/search.pdb?expression=S='Internet%20Mailing%20Liste'+AND+YEAR='1996'
