Sounds like the CD truly *is* VG, and not VG+ . Grading at VG+ means even a single light scratch. Lots of light scratches = VG. Per Discogs, a VG is: "Quite a few light scuffs/scratches, or several more-pronounced scratches. This has obviously been played, but not handled as carefully as a VG+." It's not just about how deep or pronounced the scratches are that reduce the grading to VG, but the amount of light scratches. Sounds like you need to re-edit your listings to downgrade a few things to VG, not tell people that it's not NM. NM means no visible scratches whatsoever. NM means perfect other than it has been opened. VG+ means something slightly less than perfect. VG means lots of very light scratches, or a just a few larger/deeper scratches (that don't affect play) or scuffing.
