The statement on the tab "shipping and payment methods" is: "The seller has not stated a method for shipment to the USA. Contact the sender and ask for information on shipment to your location." But in the item description it says "pickup only because it's heavy".
The description reads:

Here is a keypunch (Interpreting Data Recorder) of Decision Data, type 8010 offered for sale.
This keypunch was introduced in 1973 and has very many features. The device was made with such high operating speed that it could punch in real time even with the fastest data entry by experienced keypunch operators. The appearance of the device is very good, almost as new.
