Ron Guth:

Judd 1755 is an off-metal, aluminum striking of an 1885 $10 gold piece. Traditionally, it has been referred to as a die trial, but most modern researchers, led by Saul Teichman of uspatterns.com, believe that these were made for inclusion in multi-denominational sets for sale to collectors. Today, we know of only two examples of this issue, both graded by PCGS as PR65CAM and PR66, respectively. The PCGS PR66 appeared in quite a few different auctions between 1987 and 2014 -- the fact that it has not reappeared in the past three years indicates that it may have found a permanent home. The other example (PCGS PR65CAM) is definitely in strong hands, -- namely those of mega-collector, Bob Simpson.
