is it normal for a sub to have so many scratches?

It's so scratched because it's plexi glass and not sapphire crystal. To a collector it is, more often than not,important to be all original rather than looking pretty. I'm assuming there's no original box/papers? If you can get it for 3200 or less it's a bargain. Value will increase significantly as they're getting harder to find in good condition.
Might be worth asking if the scratches can be buffed out a bit. I definitely wouldn't change it to sapphire.

I'm still waiting on a reply from this guy, but if its been serviced by Rolex then its safe to assume its not stolen and is indeed legit? In this case, box and papers aren't important to and can always be acquired later I suppose.

Certsinlynlooks/sounds legit. Don't bother buying box/papers for it. RSC paperwork is fine for a vintage watch. Meet up at an AD to look and get them to verify that all is present and correct. Call in advance and make sure this is OK. Tell them if it's all good and you buy you will be looking for them to arrange a service. Some shit dealers won't or will attempt to charge a fee. A good dealer should even call rolex to make sure it's not stolen.
