Looks like you may have a Gypsum board or Rock Lath with a Plaster applied over it.
Just use 5/8" drywall than apply a setting compound over the drywall out to about 1/16" from the existing finish, than use a finish coat material of your choice.

You can use the standard 1/2" drywall, then a second layer of 3/8" to get something to match what you have.
Just use longer drywall screws for the second layer and make sure they go into studs.
