Default where to buy DC motor brushings for Black & Decker CMM1000 lawn mower?

I have a Black & Decker CMM1000 5HP 24V cordless lawn mower for years.
I am seeking the DC electric motor brushings to replace the pair on the
motor. This brushing is spring-loaded, and can be remove by unscrewing the
plastic holder. The brush width is half inch. Can you tell me is the
brushing material copper? See photo he

I look everywhere at all the typical hardware stores in Silicon Valley, and
they do not have this.

Where should I look for it?

Since you asked, no; brushes are made of carbon.

But looking at the brushing material, it seems metallic and like copper. How
is carbon material conductive?

Carbon brush are conductive but have some resistance. Carbon is soft
and wears instead of the copper commutator. They have a copper coating
to conduct better in their brass (usually) holders.
