Similar to the 4d / 6d combination, the 2/6d Abo and the 1/0d were prepared on the same master plate, each design having 240 impressions built from a 2 on transfer roller (per design). Issued in sheets of 120.

A single composite alto plate was made, from which 3 composite nickel electros were grown, These electros were subsequently halved to provide 3 printing plates of upper and lower sheets for each design.

See 1/3d and 4d for other composite plates.
