Ron Guth:

Of the S-Mint Half Dimes of the 1860's, the 1868-S is the most readily available. The scarcest dates (1864-S and 1869-S) are twice as rare as the 1868-S and the dates closest to the 1868-S (1863-S and 1866-S) both have substantially lower pops. Numerous Mint State 1868-S Half Dimes exist, ranging in grade from MS60 to MS66; the finest example is a single PCGS MS66+. Many 1868-S Half Dimes have spidery die cracks at the base of the reverse.
