I want to display the following string:


Using \oldstylenums, but the alphabetic characters are messed up. Any ideas (using LaTeX and CM/CL fonts), without resorting to:

\oldstylenums{344}F\oldstylenums{9}DA\oldstylenums{1} ...

Minimal working example:

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt,pdftex]{article} % define the title
