The sale of an asset by a US person (even if the asset is outside the US) is taxed in the same way as usual.
It is long term if held for more than 1 year and short term if held for less than 1 year and 1 day.
The owner must know how long they held.
The reporting is the same (form 8949 and Schedule D).
