Limited by a Postmark

Just what does this mean?
Listen up, because there will be a test:
A postmark creates a natural limitation in that it a. cancels the stamp, and b. sets a time, date and place in which it was applied (or when and where the item was mailed), as well as c., is only available once, and then never again.
The postmark was created in 1661, by the then-postmaster of Britain, Henry Bishop.  It has evolved greatly since those times, but the intent remains the same.

Once a postmark expires (they have a 30-day lifespan), they will never be made available again.  Each piece to date by NW Limited includes a postmark as well as the stamps relevant to the piece they grace.
For example, there are just 119 American Motorcycle pieces with the postmarks on their mats, which also have the stamps issued by the USPS. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. The edition will be closed.  Over.  Done.  Finito.
