How much do "minor scratches" on iPad screen effect resale price?

I have an iPad 2 64GB WiFi only. I am going to sell it with the Smart Cover, of course.

It has a few "light" scratches on the screen. They aren't always visible. Mostly with a solid white background, and I doubt I could capture them in a pick with my 4s.

Sellmmyac said its worth 370$. How much should I take off for the scratches? Any thoughts? Probably posting on Craigslist so I can get a mini instead.

I wish I had brought it into the Mac store a couple of years ago because the scratches came from playing Infinity Blade shortly after purchase (weird, I know). Oh well. That's a whole different topic.

List it for the price you'd ideally like to get and then be straight forward in the post. that way they may send an offer a little bit below and you can wager whether or not it'd be worth it. IMO.

It's hard to capture pics they're so minor. Thank you for your help! I marked this resolved as I am all set now.
