Hi all!
Is it possible that is an early P-47 windscreen on a P-40? I can't see the front glass, mirror; and interesting the frame of canopy.

I'm not seeing a photograph.  Did you mean to attach one?

I think it's just the angle that the photograph was taken, as well as distortion caused by the light, which is causing it to appear a little off.  Here's one from my collection, 80th FG pilot Robert Gale in a P-40N cockpit, for comparison:
