Answer:
Answer:

Set up Finder's Preferences to search the current folder.


Then, open the folder, type cmd-F to search by file name, and search for "copy"

You'll get a list of the files that match and you can then select all. If it catches a few that aren't correct, cmd-click on them to deselect.
