Ron Guth:

The 1862 Half Dime is common in all grades, including Mint State. Collectors can find examples better than MS65 with ease, though prices advance rapidly as the grade goes up. The best examples top out at MS68, though none of the PCGS MS68 examples has appeared yet at auction.

The strike on 1862 Half Dimes is usually strong. Occasionally, examples will show clashing of the dies, ranging from light to heavy, especially on the obverse. Luster ranges from brilliant to frosty. Some examples show striations caused by polishing of the dies.

For type purposes, this is a great choice.
