No evidence of a scratch coat, though it could have been fat mud. The way it pushed through the lath made it look like it was fairly wet mix. This was over a crawl space, so no worries about falling debris. I will post the other pics I took later.

There had to be some backing to the chicken wire and perhaps deteriated over the years. Vacuum out the area above the Sheetrock below and you may find some craft or felt paper. The bending of the nails is pretty common when doing stucco back in the days and some even do it today.

im shocked the black wire is still there. normally it just disintegrates from over the years. I have seen then fastened with nails that way but never over open bays.
