I always thought they had a brown or dark gold tint to them....maybe it's in their scales...
Looks good bud

Preserving those specimens for over 30 years seems to have altered their color. Possibly preserved in formalin .

I've never seen shad in Texas that brown.

Just my experience.

Formalin can definitely mess with colors ... I've seen it a lot with reptiles. I used to hunt and breed snakes, and occasionally we'd preserve specimens for museums.

Again, I'm just speaking from my own experience in that I've never seen shad in Texas that brown....and I could definitely be wrong.
