Theoretically, the number of images formed would be infinite.
But practically, no mirror is 100% reflecting; a part of the light is absorbed by the glass and also the reflecting material. So as you see deeper into the images, you’ll find they’re becoming dimmer each reflection.
I’d say there’ll be 15–20 reflections in practice, before they become invisible. They also turn green because standard glass is green due to ferric impurities (FeO).

If the image of an object is viewed in two plane mirrors that are inclined to each other more than one image is formed. The number of images depends on the angle between the two mirrors. Figure shows the case for an angle of 60° between the mirrors.
