Can anyone provide me with instructions to identify Record ID's stored as strings

For data archival.

Hi,

Normally the Id Field Type is a base-62 encoded string.
Each character can be one of 62 possible values:
a lowercase letter (a-z) - 26 values
an uppercase letter (A-Z) - 26 values
a numeric digit (0-9) - 10 values

Please refer below link for more information.
