The golden dolphins were melted down and recast three times during the Edo 
Era when the clan suffered severe economic hardship.When the dolphins were recast in Bunsei10(1827),the purity of the gold was greatly decreased.In order to conceal the diminished luster,openings in the mesh in the protective bird screens built around the dolphins were made smaller during the Kyouhou period(1716-1735).source Nagoya Castle Chronicles
