Like most people have said this VG vs VG+ or NM rating is really dependent on the knowledge and honesty of the seller. A VG record should still play through but may have some quiet noise, yet still sound nice for a player copy. I buy (and sell to be honest) a lot from @TOVAG on Facebook and it is so we'll moderated compared to other sites, even compared to eBay and discogs a lot of the time and every time I have bought something VG it's been VG+ when I get it because people want to keep their customer base and if it's not accurate the administrators of the group will boot that seller. I buy from some other FB groups too but for sure if you're looking for good deals like you said or some rare ones and don't want to necessarily spend the big bucks on a sealed one check out the TOVAG site. I can pretty much guarantee you'll get a thorough description of what you're buying and will be happy with it from any of the sellers on there. Good luck!
