Be careful when choosing names. Here you have clobbered the existing
string type binding to the name ‘str’.

You already have the answer; you used it in your example below. I can
only assume you're wanting something additional; what is that?

You either want it as an int, or you want it as a string. Which is it?

    >>> foo = 'D3'
    >>> int(foo, 16)
    >>> 0xD3
    >>> int(foo, 16) == 0xD3
