The technical section of the Samba is useful for this type of information:

The trans numbers you are providing looks more like parts number. The actual trans number should be stamped on a flat spot on the passenger side that looks like this:

I hope this helps.

This is the part number of the empty case, 113 301 103 B.  Beetle, bus, and Type 3 used the same case.
Look about an inch below the part number for the transmission number stamped into the case.
