need help with identifying compatible head

I found someone with a complete engine (with a good head). How do I know that the head will be compatible with mine? I remember someone mentioning that there are two different types for the 280SE.
I saw the below chart but am trying to understand what it means. Should the head that I buy also be stamped 130 016 08 01 280SE/A??

The engine stamp on my car is 130 980 12 053213
The head stamp on my car is 130 016 08 01 280SE/A
The vin # is 108 018 12 071273.
1971 280SE with inline six fuel injected.
