I'd say it depends on what the material is. Is that GoreTex? Non-waterproof? I can't really tell from the pic. Mountain Hardwear makes a very wide range of pieces.
If it's for you and the material isn't compromised, then I would say it's a kop. Same if it's for resale. Minor scrapes will take the value of stuff like this down, but climbers and hikers tend to be on the cheapskate side, so a few scrapes here and there aren't going to deter them as long as the piece is still functional. You'll get less for it than if it was in perfect condition, but still decent. I've been getting $35-$65 for Mountain Hardwear fleeces (I just sold a roughly 15 year old one for the high end), and $40-$60 for soft shell jackets. GoreTex can be tricky though... The newer GoreTex fabrics are a lot better than the old ones, so they will tend to bring a much higher price. GoreTex is more fragile than other fabrics, so really go through it with a fine-toothed come looking for holes.
