For that time Zeiss seemed to be a bit misorganized in terms of camera numbering.
Usually Contax II and III had their serial numbers in the accesories shoe as well as in the bottom of shutter crate asn removable back (left side seen when removed). The first character is a letter which is referred to manufacturing year but this letter is not related to a specific model rather than to a general production numbers, so two diferent cameras of different models may have 1 l.s.d. of difference in serial numbers.
The listing your link points to is just a model code number list (intended for internal Zeiss and vendors use) but it isn´t related to serial numbers. AFAICR there is a listing in the Zeiss Historical Society, which tells you when your camera was made.
Example A XXXX means a Contax made in 1937.
Many 35 mm and MF film cameras, some weird cameras... and nothing digital yet!
