Problem 59217. List lunar triangular numbers without duplication

Triangular numbers—which are the subject of Cody Problems 5, 291, 44289, 44732, 45833, 55680, 55695, and 55705—are the sums of consecutive integers. For example, the 10th triangular number is the sum of the numbers 1 to 10, or 55.
Lunar addition, which is the subject of Cody Problem 44785, involves taking the largest digit in the sum. For example, 1+3 = 3, 3+6 = 6, 13+51 = 53, and 428+620 = 628.
Write a function to compute the nth lunar triangular number without duplicating any terms. For example, the 10th lunar triangular number is 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10 = 19. The 11th lunar triangular number is also 19, but because it is a duplicate, it would not be listed in this sequence. Express the answer as a character string.
