What is wrong with this picture? Confederate Oath of Allegiance

So is it just me, or does anyone else see anything “wrong” with this picture (i.e., artifact)?  I don’t dispute its authenticity.  But if it is, what seems weird or wrong about it?

It is for sale on Heritage Auction until December 8th.

    I cannot read the document date – ’61?….however, Price was named Major General in March ’62 and Springfield was Union held at the time. Or, I am way off on what you read…..that is all I can see to wonder about. I’ll wait for your take someday.

        The existing government, Pro-South, in Jefferson City was driven out under martial law and replaced by Lincoln with pro-Union people. Missouri didn’t “officially secede” under this government but essentially had two governments. The Confederate government was located in Neosho, Missouri, in the southwest part of the state.
