Basically it is saying that you aren't worth anything. It isn't true but that is what whoever said it meant.

How interested are you in obtaining 100+ pounds of peanut shells? Not very interested I'd imagine.

Well, peanut shells are worthless so they are saying you are worthless and useless.

Usually the expression is "gold". I can only think that this is a "left-handled" compliment.

I’m guessing it means you’re not worth much. Tell him he’s worth his weight in pigeon sh1t.
