Seeking information on A.B. Eskilstuna-Böden Razor

I have own an old Swedish razor that most likely came with my Great-Grandfather when he immigrated from Sweden or with his father when he followed a few years later. It was in an old desk I inherited from the farmstead. My great-grandfather not only build the house, he built the desk the razor was in.

I would like any information you could provide on the razor. I've added photos. Markings are on the blade, A.-B. Eskilstuna-Böden, Göteborg. The shaft of the blade it says C.V. Heljestrand Eskilstuna. On the other side of the blade on the shaft it says M followed by three crowns and then K no 31. I believe the handle is ivory with a baleen spacer. There is small knick in the blade so I don't think it's usable. There is also a dark small stain on the handle, most likely a coffee stain. ;-)

I also have the box it came in and it is marked with E.V. Heljestrand, Eskilstuna Sweden

If you can add any history or information I would appreciate it.

Not sure about the show side markings, l but it is a MK31 razor, doubt the scales are real ivory, they appear to be faux.

Store away and keep for sentimental value

I am sure Polarbeard will be by and might shed some light on the face markings
