I have been traded this 18k president style bracelet and I have never seen 1 like it before. I know 53 ends are for 18xx series but 55's are for? No link removal screws so must be prior to 1971. Has anybody had 1 like this?

...i.e. one with 55 ends, will easily fit on an 1803 (for example). The space between the lug space on the quickset models is actually fractionally wider and the case itself is thicker. Hence, the specific 55 end pieces for the transitional models.
So I would say this is a non-concealed clasp President bracelet (yes they were still making these this late)* for a transitional semi-quick Day-Date. E clasp code (c. 1990) would seem to corroborate this.
All the best,
T.

...clasp code "E" is more like 1980-81.
